Persisting, Resisting & Rising
We've been fighting for comprehensive reproductive rights in New York State since 1972.
Throughout the nation, we are experiencing an unprecedented time of reproductive rights attacks, political mobilization, and action.
The women of New York need us now more than ever.

OUR MISSION
Ensure that all women, regardless of age, race, class, status, geography or ability to pay, have full, unimpeded access to reproductive health care.

HOW WE DO IT
To make our mission a reality, we work to get pro-choice candidates elected and appointed at every level of government.

AFFILIATIONS
WCLA - Choice Matters is not a member or ally of any political party. We rely on support from donations and grants.
