PPCWNY supports the Black Lives Matter movement.

Many of you have been asking what you can do. Here are some ways you can help and resources you can access.

Contact Your Elected Officials

  • Urge Congress to take action by urging your members of Congress to support Reps. Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Barbara Lee, and Karen Bass’s resolution to condemn police brutality, racial profiling, and use of excessive force.
  • Politicians in multiple states are passing extreme laws that ban abortion. Contact your reps and tell them reproductive health care must be protected. 

Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York has signed the Rochester Black Agenda Group's declaration of Racism as a Public Health Crisis. Read it here. 

The History of the Rape Crisis Movement

The Daily Show's Trevor Noah shares his thoughts on the killing of George Floyd, the protests in Minneapolis, the dominos of racial injustice and police brutality, and how the contract between society and Black Americans has been broken time and time again. Watch the video here
