EVC Stands with Roe v. Wade
The Alumni Advisory Council of the Educational Video Center (EVC) denounces the overturning of Roe v. Wade resulting from the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. We believe reproductive health care—including abortion— is health care, and that health care is a human right.
The Alumni Advisory Council is outraged and deeply concerned about the impact this decision will have on people capable of getting pregnant, and the disproportionate impact on women, youth, low-income communities, and communities of color. As an organization comprised of young people whose backgrounds intersect with the same demographics that this decision directly targets, we remain committed to uplifting and celebrating the voices and the experiences of our communities.
As trigger laws go into effect in conservative states across the country, the states where abortion remains legal will become inundated with people traveling from states where bans are already in effect. We anticipate that this will put a strain on New York’s abortion providers and will significantly impact our communities. We encourage those who can, to support their local abortion funds by visiting abortionfunds.org.
