Testifying Before the New York City Council

On January 18, 2013, NYAAF board members Alison Turkos and Phillip Kim testified before the New York City Council Committee for Women’s Issues on a resolution commemorating the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and calling on the US Congress to fund comprehensive reproductive health care, including abortion. This is the first time NYAAF has provided testimony, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to report that the resolution passed!

The hearing was live-streamed, and our testimony begins around 57 minutes into the video. You can read our testimony here. Below are photos of our board members reading the testimony. Thank you to Gina Asprocolas for taking them!
