On June 30, we hosted the first session of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Nebraska’s 2020 Summer Policy Series. Whether or not you were able to join us, you can take action today to stand with our partners and support our communities that are fighting to survive multiple public health crises.
As Pride month comes to a close, we look back on the month of June as one that pushed us, challenged us, and called us to do more. We must never forget that Pride began as an act of protest by a Black trans woman. That protest continues.
June Medical Services v. Russo not only threatens access to care, it also brings up the issue of “third-party standing” and whether it is applicable in abortion cases. If the Court rules that physicians and health centers no longer have “third-party standing,” it will make it much more difficult for unnecessary abortion restrictions to be challenged in the courts.
It’s National Nurses Week so we’d like to take a moment to highlight our compassionate and skilled providers. Jessica, a registered nurse at the Planned Parenthood Omaha Health Center, shared some of her experiences working in this moment.
The Nebraska Primary is on May 12. It's time to make your voice heard. Learn about key election dates, as well as how to register to vote, vote by mail, and find your polling place.
There are many ways we can advocate for these values during these times. We hope you will take a moment to act from anywhere today.
