On the Campaign Trail, April 2, 2013

Welcome to our 2nd E-Newsletter!

As we come to the end of Women’s History Month, I wanted to touch on one last and very important issue that women everywhere face – access to top quality healthcare.

Advanced screenings and annual doctor’s visits can prevent diseases from spreading, cancer from growing to untreatable sizes and ensure babies are born healthy. Working to ensure that women’s healthcare is affordable, accessible and available to women will be a major part of my work in the City Council.

As your City Councilmember, I will work to ensure that birth control and contraceptive options are affordable and easily accessible for women. Today, many students only learn about these options in the 12th grade, in the City Council I will work to make sure all middle and high school students receive comprehensive education on these options before administering contraceptives. Health Care for women that covers prenatal care, high-risk pregnancies, fibroids, mammograms, cancer screenings, miscarriages, HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis screenings and treatment is essential to the health of our communities and as your City Councilmember I will fight to protect and enhance these services for women.

The past two weeks have been very exciting for our campaign. We out raised our competition and presented the broadest coalition of support in the race. Read more in the Fort Greene Patch and Our Time Press.

Just Saturday, I was honored at Lenox Road Baptist Church by Young Movement with their annual W.I.S.H. Award where both Congresswoman Yvette Clarke and Public Advocate Bill De Blasio's Wife Chirlane McCray served as Keynote Speakers.

Thank you for tuning in; lookout for more updates from the campaign on Facebook and Twitter. Next time we’ll be looking more in depth into housing issues in our neighborhood.
