Last legislative session, we analyzed hundreds of new bills and sorted civil rights priorities into our top categories. As bills are introduced during this year's legislative session, we will share which bills we have identified as top priorities or top threats. As state senators face key issues, we need them to make the right choices and your advocacy can help.
EXPAND ACCESS TO REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CARE
As times change, so must our methods of ensuring access to safe and comprehensive reproductive health care.
PROTECT WOMEN FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE
Our race or background should never dictate the level of treatment, care or humanity we receive. Senators can take concrete action to protect women from all walks of life. Important measures have been introduced to address maternal health disparities; require humane accommodations for pregnant and nursing people in our prisons; ensure sexual assault survivors have access to the care they need; and provide better support for domestic violence survivors, including limits on eviction and the ability to break a lease.
