Featured Organization: Family Planning Advocates of New York State (FPA)

Family Planning Advocates of New York State (FPA) is a non-profit, membership-based, statewide organization dedicated to protecting and expanding access to a full range of reproductive health services, including abortion care. Their provider members include the state’s nine Planned Parenthood affiliates, hospital-based, community based and freestanding family planning centers and a wide range of health, community and social service organizations that collectively represent an integral part of New York’s health care safety net for uninsured and under insured women and men. Their diversity is reflected in our member organizations which are located statewide across rural, suburban and urban areas.

In collaboration with a variety of organizations statewide, FPA actively engages in policy analysis, coalition building, educational efforts, and the passage of state legislation to ensure the availability and access to affordable, quality reproductive health care for women, men and families.

Initially established in 1977 as an advocacy organization, FPA later expanded its outreach and public education efforts by creating the Education Fund of FPA in 1987, which focused on educating community members and policymakers alike on the significance of equal access to a comprehensive range of reproductive health care services.
