PPGNY Action Fund activists, supporters, and allies represented at eight sister marches across New York
New York - Today Planned Parenthood of Greater New York Action Fund marched, mobilized, and made history at multiple Women’s March movements across the state. From New York City to Utica, more than 300 PPGNY Action Fund activists, volunteers, and supporters demanded that our country become a place where all women are free to live their lives - their way.
People of all ages, races, and gender identities called out the Trump-Pence administration and misguided politicians for their harmful attacks on sexual and reproductive health care, rights, and justice. The Women’s March has become a symbol of our collective resistance to damaging and discriminatory policies. PPGNY Action Fund proudly marched in solidarity with millions of allies around the world to create progressive change and destroy the status quo that impedes our rights to citizenship, climate justice, and vital health care - including access to safe, legal abortion.
“We know what’s possible when we come together to protect and expand access to sexual and reproductive health care,” said Pascale Bernard, VP of Public Affairs and Organizing, Planned Parenthood of Greater New York Action Fund. “Last year, our state leaders passed the Reproductive Health Act - landmark legislation that enshrines the protections of Roe v. Wade into state law. Let’s keep the momentum going and elect pro-reproductive health care champions up and down the ballot this November. We will always Rise Up and never back down! ”
PPGNY Action Fund worked in coalition with partners across New York to organize Women’s March sister movements in Schenectady, Glens Falls, and Saratoga. Our partnerships reflect our collective commitment to ensuring that women’s voices are at the forefront of policies that impact us all. We’re building the future together.
