Birth control advocates at Empire State Plaza to fight for better access

Students from across the state came to Albany on Monday to push for better access to birth control.
Advocates met with legislators to discuss the Birth Control Access Act. It would allow pharmacists to dispense birth control.

This bill would give young people easier access to contraceptives.

Teenagers who joined in got to see firsthand how state government works.

The trip was hosted by the New York Birth Control Access Project, which works with young people to fight for reproductive justice.
