“We applaud the FDA’s decision to make mifepristone accessible in pharmacies,” said Diana Rhodes, Vice President for Policy, Partnership, and Organizing at Advocates for Youth. “Young people are committed to building access to abortion, and ensuring medication abortion is easily available is a huge part of that."
Advocates applauds Congress and the Biden administration for the passage of the Respect for Marriage Act, which would codify marriage equality in the United States, ensuring LGBTQ+ people are equally protected in their pursuit for marriage as they build their futures and families.
Advocates for Youth, with a very heavy heart, stands strongly in support of our LGBTQIA+ communities across the country and around the world. We send love and support to the city of Colorado Springs in the wake of the shooting at Club Q.
“Young people vote, and young people are fighting for abortion access, LGBTQ rights, and liberation for everyone,” said Debra Hauser, President, Advocates for Youth. “Young people will never let basic humanity disappear in this country. They’re ready to work with our new elected officials to move this country forward.”
The consequences of this law will be severe. We are concerned for the young people who partner with us to end HIV criminalization in Pennsylvania - many of whom exist at the intersections of being Black, Indigneous and People of Color, queer and trans people, and people living with HIV.
We are mourning the recent murders of two members of the LGBTQI+ community at the LGBT+ bar, Tepláreň, in Slovakia’s capital of Bratislava. Advocates for Youth stands in solidarity with the brave young people fighting for LGBTQI+ rights and acceptance while protesting against these violent hate crimes.
