Amicus Brief: State of California v. Azar, N.D. Cal and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Trump, E.D. Pa.
In November 2018, the Trump Administration issued revised rules regarding employer exemptions to the ACA's birth control coverage requirement that are virtually identical to the ones issued in October 2017. On January 7th, 2019, NAPAWF, the National Women’s Law Center, the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, and, SisterLove, Inc., and 40 other organizations filed amicus briefs with the District Court for the Northern District of California and the District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in support of motions for preliminary injunctions barring these revised rules from going into effect. The briefs explain the harmful impact the rules would have on people of color, young people, transgender and gender nonconforming people, and others who already face multiple and intersecting barriers to health care and economic advancement.
