About Us

NARAL Pro-Choice New York is the state’s foremost pro-choice political and advocacy organization. We work every day to protect and advance access to the full range of reproductive health care to help women, men, and teens stay healthy and safe.
NARAL Pro-Choice New York is a political and advocacy organization whose mission is to guarantee every woman the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion.  We work at the state and local level to pass proactive, pro-choice legislation and to defeat anti-choice initiatives.  Politically, we work to elect pro-choice officials and hold them accountable to our mission.  Our history of success and the relationships we’ve built give us unparalleled access to elected leaders and policy decision makers at the highest levels. NARAL Pro-Choice New York is the New York affiliate of NARAL Pro-Choice America.

The National Institute for Reproductive Health – the research, education, and policy arm of NARAL Pro-Choice New York – works in states and localities to promote reproductive rights and expand access to reproductive health care, reduce unintended pregnancies, and empower youth to make healthy sexual and reproductive decisions. The Institute’s focus is on building support for a proactive agenda for, and unapologetic approach to, reproductive rights, health, and justice. We do this by helping to strengthen a decentralized yet interconnected movement, based on authentic partnerships founded on mutual respect and learning, capacity building, and information sharing in strategic cities and states across the country. To that end, the Institute offers strategic guidance, hands‐on support, and funding to help state and local leaders and organizations build a public base of support, engage policymakers, change public policy, and remove barriers to health care.

The partnership between NARAL Pro-Choice New York and the National Institute for Reproductive Health reflects our belief that being based in New York gives us both a unique opportunity and a serious obligation. The opportunity is to make this city and this state shining examples of what it means to protect and prioritize women’s reproductive health and rights. The obligation is to support and collaborate with advocates in other cities and other states so that they can not only stem the tide of anti-choice encroachments, but begin to build a better future for the women and families in their communities.

The NARAL Pro-Choice New York Political Action Committee works to elect pro-choice candidates across New York State.
