WHARR is the Women’s Health and Reproductive Rights working group of #GetOrganizedBK.

We are Brooklyn residents working to promote gender equity, women's health, and reproductive rights. We take action for positive change and fight against anti-choice and other regressive policies that harm women’s health, produce fact sheets on current issues and legislation, share stories about how those issues impact women’s lives, and hold events to share our work with the community.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE BATTLEFRONT

we're FIGHTING FOR WOMEN'S RIGHTS IN NEW YORK STATE

Just before the deadline, Governor Cuomo and the State Legislature signed off on a budget that includes funding for the MTA but virtually no protections for women's health.

Now we must resume the fight for the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act, important bills that are languishing in the NYS Senate.

congress and the white house are attacking women's health at every turn

The Trump/Pence administration and Republicans in Congress are shaping policy and writing legislation that harm women's health.

Stay informed (Warning: you'll be outraged!)

WHARR's MONTHLY PAP

(that's "POLITIcAL ACTION PARTY")

Every month, we host a Political Action Party (PAP) to channel postcard writing and text banking efforts for important races and issues around the country and here in New York.
