NYC just became the first city in the country to support anyone - however much money they make or wherever they live - in getting safe, affordable abortion care in New York City! #FundAbortionNYC


This is WHARR:
Women’s Health and Reproductive Rights

We believe that controlling one’s own bodily autonomy is a fundamental right. This must include the right to decide all aspects of one’s own reproductive health, including access to safe, legal abortions; the right to safe, economically secure pregnancy and parenthood; and the right to safety, health, and equal protection under the law, irrespective of one’s gender identity or sexual orientation.

We promote gender equity, women's health, and reproductive rights. We take action for positive legislative change; work to elect progressive, pro-choice candidates; and fight against regressive policies that harm women’s health and well-being. A grassroots group based in Brooklyn, NY, we hold monthly meetings and other events to share our work with the community. We’re a working group of #GetOrganizedBK, and we welcome new members committed to our cause.


HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE BATTLEFRONT

FIGHT FOR AFFORDABLE ABORTION ACCESS RIGHT HERE IN NYC

WHARR is part of a coalition uniting behind the #FundAbortionNYC campaign to ask the New York City Council to directly fund the New York Abortion Access Fund (NYAAF).

With outrageous attacks on reproductive rights around the country, now is the time for NYC to set the national standard as a place where abortion is not just accessible, but affordable for all.

CALL YOUR STATE ELECTEDS IN SUPPORT OF COMPREHENSIVE SEX ED

Did you know that New York currently has NO statewide learning standard for comprehensive sexuality education (CSE)? That means students across the state receive inadequate, biased, or misleading sex ed — or no sex ed whatsoever.

Learn more from NYCLU’s legislative memo

Call your Assemblymember and State Senator — ask them to support the current bill for CSE (S.4844 / A.6512 ).

Angry about Alabama? Here’s one way to help!

Following passage of the the all-out abortion ban in Alabama, WHARR reached out to the Yellowhammer Fund to see if there are other ways to support them, in addition to giving cash.

They asked us to support the Reproductive Justice Resource Center in Birmingham, which provides free menstrual products, condoms, emergency contraception, diapers, formula, prenatal vitamins, and more to folks who need them.

The RJ Resource Center has an Amazon wish list. What if we completely stock the store? This would go a long way towards providing reproductive care in Alabama to anyone who needs it.

ALL MERCH PROCEEDS GO TO WHARR AND GET ORGANIZED BK.
