Volunteer & Protect Our Local Abortion Clinics
Hit the Streets!
Women are being harassed and intimidated outside of women’s health clinics right here in NYC and in counties across the state. Sign-up with Women’s Justice NOW’s Clinic Escort Program – almost 1,000 volunteers strong. We provide the on-the-ground training and you provide the support to help women and families access clinics safely.
Expanding Our Work
Women’s Justice NOW also provides consultation, training, and templates to trusted allies and advocates for reproductive justice who are interested in developing local clinic escorting teams in support of their local women’s health centers. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Saturdays, 7 – 11 AM in Queens
Pro-choice volunteers are needed to escort patients into a women’s health clinic in Jamaica, Queens (close access to E train from Manhattan).
