The NYCLU and other health care, homeless and runaway youth, and legal service providers and civil rights, LGBTQ equality, and reproductive rights advocates, wrote a letter to Governor Kathty Hochul urging her to sign S.8937 (Brisport)/A.9604 (Gottfried) to enable homeless and runaway youth to access health care. Homeless and runaway youth are some of the most vulnerable populations in New York. S.8937/A.9604 will reduce the burdens on these populations by ensuring that these young people are able to access medical care before their conditions become life threatening.
