Click here to read about NAPW joining East Harlem Preservation and more than 800 New Yorkers including NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito in their demand to remove the statue erected in honor of Dr. James Marion Sims that stands on the perimeter of Central Park on the border of East Harlem.

What you can do now that you are back?

NAPW knows that activists and allies live and fight in every part of this country including the so-called red states. Unfortunately, larger, mainstream organizations too often treat people in “red” states as too conservative to bother with – instead of encouraging and supporting activism in these parts of the country.

In addition to supporting NAPW here are three more things you can do:

1) Support the Take Root: Red State Perspectives on Reproductive Justice Conference in Norman, Oklahoma. Last year 600 people from Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Tennessee and the region attended. Take Root, sponsored by University of Oklahoma’s Women and Gender Studies Program, is taking place this year on Feb 24-25, 2017. Please join us there and give to Take Root because everyone deserves reproductive justice, no matter where they hang their hat at night. http://take-root.org/
