Planned Parenthood of New York City Action Fund congratulates our elected sexual and reproductive health and rights allies, listed below, who have been named legislative committee chairs in the New York State Senate.

Committee chairs are critical leaders on their issue areas, help shape important policy, and are the gatekeepers to passing key legislation. We can’t wait to see what these incredible leaders do next to create a more equitable, just New York City where all people have access to the care they need and can make the best reproductive health decisions for themselves and their families.
