Letter to Gov. Hochul: Homeless and Runaway Youth Access to Health Care
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.
