Great News from Alabama

Advocates for Youth congratulates Doug Jones as the winner of the Alabama special Senate election. We honor the survivors who spoke out about Roy Moore’s long history of sexual violence. Given this history, we are still deeply troubled by the endorsement of Moore by President Trump and the Republican National Committee. Young people demand respect for survivors and will not stand for their stories to be ridiculed, attacked, or brushed aside. With Advocates’ long history of organizing for reproductive and sexual health and rights in Alabama, we look forward to working with Doug Jones to ensure that all people have access to the entire spectrum of reproductive health care, including sex education, contraception, maternity care, pre-natal care, and abortion. Young people, who backed Jones by a wide margin, are leading this country forward, and we’re celebrating that today!
