AYA on SCOTUS overturning Roe v Wade

6 / 24 / 2022

AYA expresses our deep grief and anger at today's Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade, which has protected our reproductive rights for 50 years. The deleterious consequences of this decision will reverberate across the nation, directly impacting those who need reproductive care and subsequently causing harm to families and communities, especially those of color.

This week's events: Hill meeting marathon kick-off, SEC comment

  • Policy efforts:
    • SEC climate disclosure rule: The SEC has proposed a rule that would require corporations to "provide detailed reporting of their climate-related risks, emissions, and net-zero transition plans." AYA responded to the rule with a public comment on behalf of our membership, and also signed on to a comment written by our allies Amazon Watch and First Peoples Worldwide.
  • Advocacy:
    • Hill meetings: We kicked off a series of meetings with Congressional offices this week. Our advocacy team and select AYA members in NY, IL, and CA met with Senator Duckworth (D-IL) and Representative Ritchie Torres (D-NY-15), and the staff of Senator Feinstein (D-CA) to share on-the-ground stories and policy priorities.
