Amicus Brief
Amicus Brief: Allegheny Reproductive Health Center vs. Pennsylvania DHS

New Voices for Reproductive Justice and In Our Own Voice, represented by If/When/How and co-counsel Krysten Connon of the law firm Lichten & Liss-Riordan, P.C., authored an amicus brief cosigned by 23 organizations working in Pennsylvania and the U.S. to ensure Reproductive Justice and the health and well-being of Black women and girls. Lead amicus New Voices for Reproductive Justice (“New Voices”) is a Pennsylvania nonprofit organization that works through leadership development, community organizing, policy advocacy, and culture change to amplify the voices of Black women and girls, who demand and deserve access to quality and culturally responsive health care. New Voices and all amici share the goal that Black women and girls live long, healthy, and joyful lives – goals that are impeded when Medicaid restrictions relegate Black women and girls to second-class citizenship in health care.
