ADVOCACY UPDATES

TITLE X – On March 4, 2019 the Trump administration released final regulations for Title X, the federal family planning program that has provided critical family planning services for low-income women, as well as preventive care and STI screening and treatment.  That same day, California's Attorney General and Essential Access Health (administrator of the Title X program in California) filed lawsuits to block implementation of these regulations. The new rules are harmful to women’s health and jeopardize access to health care.  Read more.
