Petition for Women’s Health Acts NYS

June 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The NYCLU (along with partners Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts and National Institute for Reproductive Health) is embarking on a very ambitious canvassing campaign to advocate for passage of the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (CCCA).  With Trump’s Administration defunding Planned Parenthood, appointing Supreme Court judges who threaten to overturn Roe v. Wade, and promoting violence against women we must urge New York State legislators to show leadership in the fight to protect women’s access to healthcare.

This Saturday, June 3rd we’ll be out obtaining signatures for our RHA petition from 9 AM-12 PM at the Rochester Public Market We’ll meet by the Java’s at the Market at 9 AM and go over details. It’s important that we share with our elected representatives that their constituents support the RHA. It’s important that we get in as many signatures as possible and with your help, we can do that! If you’ve petitioned before, this is the event for you! If you’ve never petitioned before, this is also the event for you! Please arrive by 9 AM and we will go over the details, as well as provide you with all the materials! Please RSVP to geneseevalley@nyclu.org by Friday, June 2nd.

We’ll be dropping off the signatures in person to our legislators out in Albany on June 7th! If you can’t make it out next Saturday but want to support our cause, please sign on to our online petition at the following link:
