NAPAWF*NYC Action Alerts
Join us for our event, The Holiday Event You Actually Want to Attend, on November 21st: The holidays can be difficult. This time of year can include traditions that may not reflect your values, tense familial relationships, and expectations of what the holidays “should” be which rarely reflect your reality. You don’t have to deal with this experience alone. We hope you can see NAPAWF*NYC as a chosen family, where you can share both your personal and political self.
We want to help you manage your mental health during the holidays. Instead of our usually scheduled Study Group, this month we’ll be holding a community event to hold space for the varied relationships we have with the holidays and our families.
NYC against PRENDA
Insidious anti-abortion laws targeting Asian American and Pacific Islander women specifically have passed and are on the books in 11 states. The so-called “sex- selective abortion bans,” also known as “Prenatal Nondiscrimination Acts” (PRENDA) draw on racist stereotypes to push abortion care further out of reach.
Even in New York, PRENDA legislation has been put up for a vote six times (WTF, right?!). We want the New York City Council to take a stand and let the state legislature and the country to know: we will not be silent while politicians restrict our reproductive autonomy under false, racist pretenses. We’re demanding the New York City Council pass a resolution that says the city opposes discriminatory sex-selective abortion bans. Click here to sign the petition and learn more.
