10:00am [10:00am] Tell Senator Funke: Support Contraceptive Care for Women
Description:
NYS Senator Rich Funke Opposes the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (CCCA) because he thinks the morning after pill is an abortifacient (it is not) and after reading comments some of his constituents wrote on a survey (which had nothing to do with women's health) he distributed. Join us (bring signs) for a press conference when we explain that Senator Funke is wrong about the morning after pill and that women's health demands more thought than reading comments. ​ Monday, June 5 10:00 am 230 Packetts Landing, Fairport, NY Facebook event: https://goo.gl/nJKhk4 The CCCA is NY legislation which, if and when the Affordable Care Act is repealed, will require NY insurance companies to provide access to free contraception. The Act has passed the NYS Assembly but the Senate has not allowed it to come to the floor for a vote. Speaking at the press conference will be Kelly LeBlanc, Vice President of Rochester NOW and Action Together Rochester Women's Rights Team Lead; Jaclyn Richard, President of Rochester NOW; and Matt Brown, MD, a family physician and candidate for Perinton Town Council. Sponsored by Rochester NOW and Action Together Rochester Women's Rights Team. For more information, email info@rochesternow.org.

4:30pm [4:30pm] Christians Witnessing for Palestine, Day of Action
Description:
Enough! Join CW4P for A Day of Action Twelve Corners, Brighton Monday, June 5th, 2017, 4:30 6:30 p.m. Week of Action graphic 2017 marks: 10+ years of Israel's blockade of Gaza 50 years of Israel's military occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem 70 years since the Nakba and ethnic cleansing of Palestine began following the partition of the land against the will of the indigenous people; and 100 years since the Balfour Declaration, which set the stage for the Zionist movement to colonize Palestine and later to establish a Jewish state. Join Christians Witnessing for Palestine June 5, 2017 on this 50th anniversary to demand an end to Israel's brutal military occupation as part of a commitment to justice for all Palestinians, whether in historic Palestine or in exile. Israel's actions since 1967 make clear that the occupation was never meant to be temporary. It is not an aberration. It is the latest extension of Israel's ethnic cleansing and subjugation of Palestinians, which continues to this day. We are responding to a call from Palestinians to send a clear message: Israel must end all its oppression of Palestinians for freedom, justice, and equality to prevail.
