This Week is Trust Women Week

The New York State Bipartisan Pro-Choice Legislative Caucus is joining the first-ever Trust Women Week, an online mass mobilization for women’s lives and rights from Jan. 20-27. 

You can click here to "march" this unique online campaign with more than 70 organizations across the nation, including coordinating partner the Trust Women/Silver Ribbon Campaign

We're letting legislators know that reproductive health, reproductive justice and reproductive rights are at the top of our agenda, and should be at the top of theirs, too. Our messages will be packaged and delivered directly to members of Congress, governors and state legislators to underscore that Americans trust women to make their own decisions about their bodies and their lives.

Online participants can select one of six messages: “I trust women and I vote;” “Reproductive rights are human rights;” “Keep abortion safe and legal, and make it affordable and accessible;” “Stand up and be counted for reproductive justice;” “We are the 99%. Fix the economy, and stop the attacks on women's health;” "Contraception Is Prevention."  A real-time online map shows the location of the virtual marchers.

Trust Women Week overlaps the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and reasserts our firm commitment to reclaiming the future of reproductive decision-making in 2012. You can click here to join the online march!
