Statement from the National Institute for Reproductive Health Action Fund President Andrea Miller
“We’re thrilled to congratulate Corey Johnson on his election to New York City Council Speaker. As a council member, he’s demonstrated that he understands the issues impacting women and families in New York City and we look forward to seeing all that he accomplishes as Speaker.
As attacks to reproductive freedom continue in Washington D.C., leadership at the city level is more important than ever. Johnson has never wavered in his support of reproductive health, rights and justice as a council member, and under his leadership we are confident that New York City will continue to advance progressive policies and act as a counterweight to harmful federal restrictions. We look forward to working closely with Speaker Johnson to continue to protect and advance reproductive freedoms for all New Yorkers.”
The NIRH Action Fund is a 501(c)4 that does non-partisan issue advocacy and electoral engagement to advance reproductive health, rights, and justice in states and cities across the country. Just as NIRH invests in localities and states, the NIRH Action Fund is interested in building political power at the local and state level to advance reproductive freedom.
