We will always be so proud of the work we’ve done as the Womens March on Washington NYC/Lower NY State Chapter, but we are truly excited to continue our work with FRESH NEW NAME and a local focus. Introducing… FORWARD MARCH NY!
We empower every New York woman to vote, run for office, and hold our elected officials accountable. And we urgently need all hands on deck this week, New York:
WE MUST PROTECT REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS IN NEW YORK STATE NOW!
DID YOU KNOW… that New York State’s abortion law is not up to code with Roe V. Wade? Scary, but true.
This Tuesday June 13th we ask that you focus your attention on the Reproductive Health Act (RHA), which is currently pending before the Senate Committee on Health. This bill would codify Roe v. Wade and ensure that New York’s law regarding abortions matches what the federal Constitution requires.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN #CALLYOURDOCTOR
On Tuesday, June 13th from 6:30-9:30pm, the Senators of the IDC (Independent Democratic Conference) will be hosting a fundraising event before the legislative session ends for the summer. The IDC may have “Democratic” in their name, but they definitely do not have the people’s interests at heart. They’ll be enjoying the party while women suffer because of a law that could be fixed with a simple vote, which is being held up in Albany by their group. Since they think they can make women’s medical decisions, then they should totally be able to answer all of our medical questions, right?
WE ARE ASKING YOU TO CALL, EMAIL, FACEBOOK MESSAGE/COMMENT, INSTAGRAM & TWEET at all of the Senators listed in this Google Doc: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3AXIvatc6Z3TWNuaWxQUUVsQkE/view
Do it from the office! Do it from bed! Do it at a party with friends! Do it as often as you can. Let’s blitz them to ensure they hear our message while they’re raising money for their next campaign.
AGAIN, ALL DETAILS, SCRIPTS, CONTACT INFO & THE RHA ITSELF CAN BE FOUND HERE: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3AXIvatc6Z3TWNuaWxQUUVsQkE/view
