New York City Mayor Eric Adams today announced that City Hall and other municipal buildings will be lit green in support of abortion rights tonight. Earlier today, Mayor Adams, elected leaders, reproductive rights organizations, community leaders and activists, and thousands of New Yorkers marched across the Brooklyn Bridge, calling for safe, legal access to abortion across the nation during the “Bans Off Our Bodies” march.
“Abortion is health care and health care is a human right,” said Mayor Adams. “New York City stands with everyone fighting to protect reproductive rights and against anti-choice extremists trying to strip away 50 years of precedent. While New York will never block access to an abortion, now is the time for us to make clear, with one voice, that we will not allow the nation to move backwards. We are the majority: The majority of this city, this state, and this country that supports reproductive rights, and we will fight like hell to hold onto to those rights.”
In addition to City Hall, the following municipal buildings will be lit up in green this weekend:
- The David N. Dinkins Manhattan Municipal Building: 1 Centre Street, New York, NY 10007
