Led by the National Council of Jewish Women New York, Pro-Truth is a coalition of reproductive rights advocates, policy makers, and service providers, united to fight fake abortion clinics. We aim to educate vulnerable New Yorkers about the dangerous and deceptive tactics of fake clinics, empowering them with information to protect themselves and their peers. We also aim to motivate advocates to take action, giving them the information, tools, and resources they need to speak out.

Lady Parts Justice League
The reproductive rights joint that uses humor and outrage to fight back online and on the ground against enemies of reproductive freedom (i.e. We’re EVERYWHERE). Part USO, part Habitat for Humanity, LPJL is the only non profit that travels the country doing comedy and providing aid and comfort to independent clinics in hostile states. Clinics and activists know, when they ask LPJL for help, #WeShowUp – with our voices, our love, our laughs and most likely wine… lots of wine.

As Chair of the Committee on Women for the 2018-2021 session, Helen plans to target sexual harassment in the municipal workforce, the gender wage gap, the systemic under-representation of women in elected office, and the lack of adequate support for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
