We rallied at the Supreme Court. Next we speak in NY, CA, & MA. Join us!
On Tuesday, NAPW rallied in front of the US Supreme Court in Washington, DC to support the human right to comprehensive health care coverage, and against private corporations denying women's right to health in the guise of religious freedom. Over the next few weeks, NAPW will be speaking at and participating in a number of important public events and conferences in New York City, Boston, Oakland, and Amherst, MA. We hope to see you there!
