JOIN US: November 12 Rally for Affordable Birth Control!

Join NYU: Voices for Choice, NOW-NYU, NYU Law Students for Reproductive Justice at the Birth Control Cri$is Rally!!!

Monday, November 12th


Washington Square Park

When the Deficit Reduction Act (passed by Congress in 2005) took effect this year, students and low-income women were left out in the cold! College health centers and safety-net providers, like Planned Parenthood, had previously been able to purchase birth control from drug companies at an extremely discounted rate. But no more. As a result, affordable birth control has become out of reach for many college women. For example, the cost of a pack of birth control on some campuses has risen from $5 to nearly $50 a month!

Send Congress a message to restore access to affordable birth control for college students and low-income women!

Featuring Special Guest Speakers:
U.S. Representative Joseph Crowley
