NCSD Federal Policy Update - February 22, 2013

This week NCSD joined 42 other sexual health organizations in sending a letter to Congress urging them to support a balanced approach to deficit reduction that does not include further cuts to discretionary programs.  This letter focuses specifically on sexual and reproductive health programs that would be deeply impacted by sequester and further budget debates.  NCSD had a strong hand in writing this letter with coalition partners and it is another example of our work to educate policymakers on the importance of federal sexual health funding.   A full version of this letter can be found here.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Stephanie Arnold Pang, NCSD’s Manger, Policy and Communications at sarnold@ncsddc.orgor 202-715-3865.
