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

THE WHITE HOUSE AND CONGRESS 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 — and now Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh for a lifelong appointment to the Supreme Court.

Call your Senators and urge them to oppose Kavanauh's nomination: 202-224-3121

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

With repro rights under attack at the federal level, it's now more critical than ever that the NYS Legislature pass the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act to protect repro health here in New York state.

Call Governor Cuomo (518-474-8390) and your State Senator to demand a special session to vote on these bills!

RALLIES, WORKSHOPS, LOBBYING, CANVASSING, & MORE: JOIN US!

Just some of what's at stake: In NYC, there are over a dozen Crisis Pregnancy Centers misleading pregnant people about their health care options. In NY State, abortion remains in the criminal code and black women are nearly 4x more likely to die during pregnancy and childbirth than white women. And our State Senate is controlled by a Republican majority.
