Rally for reform!

This Saturday, more than 50 progressive groups and hundreds of health reform activists are coming together for a pro-health reform rally in Times Square. Speakers will include House Ways and Means Chair Charles Rangel of Harlem and Rep. Carolyn Maloney of Manhattan.

We are organizing a women’s contingent to attend this event, and we need your participation!

We will meet at noon outside Roosevelt Hospital at 10th Avenue and 59th Street to hear women’s health advocates. Then, at 12:30 p.m., we will walk together to the rally in Times Square, demonstrating our support for health reform all the way! We will meet up with other contingents walking to Times Square from all over the city.

Co-sponsors of the Women’s Walk for Health Reform include our sister organization Choices in Childbirth, Community Healthcare Network, the New York Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood of NYC Action Fund, NARAL Pro-Choice NY, the National Institute for Reproductive Health, the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, Gynuity Health Projects, New Space for Women’s Health, Physicians for Reproductive Choice and Health, NOW NYC, the Public Health Association of NYC, the NYC Alliance Against Sexual Assault, the Reproductive Health Access Program, WCLA-Choice Matters and the Women’s City Club of NY.

If you are interested in attending (excellent!) or co-sponsoring (even better!), please email info@raisingwomensvoices.net.
