Planned Parenthood Celebrates Family Planning Advocates Day Of Action

Action_AAJoined by more than 500 volunteers and activists from across New York, Planned Parenthood of Nassau County (PPNC) recently participated in Family Planning Advocates Annual Statewide Day of Action. Leadership from Planned Parenthood Affiliates in New York rallied to show support for women’s reproductive health care. 

Among the priorities for the legislative agenda in 2016 were funding for family planning services by increasing the Family Planning Grant by $2.4 million and the passage of the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (CCC) first introduced by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

“The Day of Action was a wonderful opportunity to meet intimately with our legislators and ensure that New York continues to be a state that empowers women. This year was particularly rewarding, as we witnessed the passage of the CCCA in the State Assembly, a bill that will ensure that New Yorkers are not denied access to the methods of contraception that are best suited to meeting their health needs. We now call on the Senate to follow the Assembly’s lead in prioritizing the reproductive healthcare needs of New Yorkers,” concluded Planned Parenthood of Nassau County’s President and CEO JoAnn D. Smith.
