ADVISORY: Fight Back for Reproductive Health Agenda Press Conference

On Thursday, May 19 District 2 Council Member Vanessa Fuentes will host a press conference alongside advocates and community members in support of passing the Fight Back for Reproductive Health Agenda. 
 
The Fight Back for Reproductive Health Agenda is a series of resolutions sponsored by Councilmember Fuentes. The recent directives by the Texas legislature and the inevitable undoing of Roe v. Wade will present significant challenges for women, trans, and non-binary people to access the health and reproductive care they need. This goes against our values as a City and our proposed Agenda will address gaps and provide certain protections and resources for our communities under attack.
