Demand NY Pass the Equality Act
Protect women from the SCOTUS ruling overturning Roe. The NY Legislature’s special session to take up gun safety legislation this Thursday must also include theTheEquality Amendment, which enshrines abortion rights and gender equality in New York’s Constitution.
Demand passage of the Equality Act (A10468A/S8797A) now by calling:
- Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins – (518) 455-2585
- Speaker Heastie – (518) 455-3791
If the EA fails to pass during this upcoming special session, the issue won’t go before voters until 2025 – a full year after the presidential cycle. Now is the time to act.
Other Post Roe Actions:
Sign this petition to have the FDA lift unnecessary restrictions on abortion medications. Donate to National Network of Abortion Funds. Support our local Planned Parenthood affiliate. The Digital Defense Fund helps you keep your abortion private and secure. Track states’ post-Roe abortion policies here.
