The election of President Obama and many pro-women's health candidates was an enormous victory for women and families. Throughout the election season, Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York supporters turned anger over attacks on women's health care into action. Now is the time to take action in the New York State Capitol.
This amazing and always inspiring event organized by Family Planning Advocates of New York at the start of the 2013 legislative session made it clear to elected officials that reproductive and sexual health care and education must remain a priority. Participants in our Day of Action learned from legislative leaders and workshop speakers about timely health care issues that need our attention and met with elected officials to promote the health and well-being of the state's women and families.
