National Organization for Women of New Jersey
We are a multi-issue, multi-strategy organization that takes a holistic approach to women’s rights. Our activists use both traditional and nontraditional means to push for social change. We engage in electoral and lobbying work. We organize marches, rallies, non-violent civil disobedience and immediate, responsive “zap” actions.
TAKE ACTION TODAY
The Reproductive Freedom Act (S3030/A4848) is ground-breaking legislation that will protect the right to abortion care for everyone in New Jersey and expand access to critical reproductive health services, especially for historically marginalized communities.
Take Action NOW to help us ensure the RFA is brought before the Senate Health Committee as soon as possible. We need you to call Senate President Steve Sweeney (856-251-9801, 856-339-0808) and Senator Vitale, Chair of the Senate Health Committee (732-855-7441) and ask them to put the RFA on the committee schedule.
Sample Script: Hi. My name is X and I live in X. I am calling today to urge [Senate President Sweeney OR Senator Vitale] to move the Reproductive Freedom Act – Bill number S3030 – and ensure it is heard in the Health Committee as soon as possible. It is critical now more than ever that we protect and expand access to reproductive health care, including abortion in New Jersey. Thank you.
