Priority: Social & Reproductive Justice
New Yorkers face roadblocks to accessing birth control. NYBCAP is paving the road to accessibility. To do so, we utilize holistic and person-centered frameworks in our reproductive advocacy initiatives.
On Our Agenda: Engage, Ally & Support
Listen to and act on the guidance of BIPOC-led groups, community leaders, and experts addressing health inequities.
For decades, health care disparities have disproportionately harmed marginalized communities. NYBCAP recognizes that racism and classism have long structured inequality in reproductive health care; understanding these systems of oppression is imperative to our work.
As allies in the fight for reproductive justice and health equity we will:
- Expand our community-based partnerships to collaborate on policy implementation, policy uptake, and other initiatives.
- Ensure that organizational professional development prioritizes, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
- Continue building a staff, Board of Directors, and Associate Board that informs our work from a variety of lived experiences.
As part of our outreach work, we consistently invite and bring together leaders in the reproductive justice space to speak with, educate and train our advocates
