Jews for Repro NY is a grassroots organizing initiative activating Jews and Jewish leaders to speak out for abortion access in the New York metro area. This movement will build locally to provide a space for New Yorkers to show up as Jews for reproductive rights.

New York’s Jewish community is hungry to engage in the fight for abortion access. Jews for Repro NY will enable advocates to take hands-on, meaningful volunteer action on repro issues most relevant here in New York, including: increasing public funding for abortion access; using our vote to protect reproductive rights; and fighting the tactics of fake clinics.

Things You Can Do Right Now:


Inform Your Networks Follow Pro-Truth on Instagram, twitter and Facebook @iamprotruth and share our posts. Share the map of real and fake clinics on our Pro-Truth website ( and share news articles about fake clinics.

Inform Vulnerable Populations: Fake clinics target women and girls of color and immigrants living in low-income communities. If you are involved with community-based agencies serving these populations (high schools, community colleges, religious institutions, legal aid providers, housing organizations and shelters, community health centers) help Pro-Truth connect to them and provide informational materials.

The Shield Law promotes access to medication abortion via telehealth for women nationwide by providing certain legal protections to medical professionals in New York providing telehealth to patients in other states. This bill has passed the NY State Senate. Sign this petition to urge your Assembly member to support this bill:

Reproductive Freedom and Equity Act: The Reproductive Freedom and Equity Grant Program (S.348.B /A. 361A) would invest in New York State’s abortion care infrastructure. This bill establishes a comprehensive, sustainable state program that will invest in providers to support abortion access. This bill has passed in the State Senate but not the Assembly. Contact your legislators and urge them to support this bill here.

Jewish communal pledge for medication abortion access: Add your voice by pledging to help us move closer to a world where every person is able to access comprehensive, affordable, compassionate, and equitable abortion care in whatever setting they choose and at whatever time they choose.



Despite legal access in New York state, abortion is often inaccessible for low-income people. If you are able, support the New York Abortion Access Fund.

Upcoming: Virtual Lobby Day with Jews for Repro NY!

On May 31st, Jews for Repro NY will be meeting virtually with our elected officials throughout the day to discuss and press them to pass important reproductive rights legislation. Join us for any meetings that are convenient for you that day.

Even if you have never lobbied a legislator previously, we want you to join us! We will provide a virtual training beforehand so everyone will be prepared to lobby, as well as summaries and talking points about our legislative priorities. If you are not comfortable speaking, we welcome you too! There is strength in numbers and just showing up for support makes a difference.

We will be discussing the need for additional funding for abortion providers, for facility, staff and security upgrades; increasing funding to abortion funds; the New York Shield law which would protect medical professionals in New York who prescribe abortion medication to patients in other states; and the need for comprehensive sex education in New York State, among other issues.
