BOLD Ignited: NYC Won’t Hyde!
You’re invited to join all your favorite local reproductive rights and justice organizations for BOLD Ignited: NYC Won’t Hyde! September 30, 2018, marks 42 years since the passage of the insidious and unjust Hyde Amendment, which bars Medicaid coverage of abortion. As the date of this grim anniversary approaches and we face Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court (say it with us – KavaNOPE!), New Yorkers are coming together to speak up, take action to end coverage bans, and to fight for reproductive justice.
Join us for a bold, first-of-its kind announcement, and learn about how you can be a part of this fight here in New York City. There will be more details to come in the weeks ahead, and trust us – you won’t want to miss this!
Co-hosted by National Institute for Reproductive Health, Lady Parts Justice, National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum NYC, National Council of Jewish Women New York, National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health NY Latina Advocacy Network, NOW-NYC, NY Abortion Access Fund, NY Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood of NYC, and Reproductive Health Access Project.
BOLD Ignited: NYC Won’t Hyde! is part of a national day of action coordinated by All* Above All. Across the country, communities will come together in person and online to light up the country with our creativity, excitement, and commitment to the work of ending bans on abortion coverage.
