Wilt Receives Endorsement from Greater Rochester Chapter of N.O.W.

ROCHESTER, NY: Robin Wilt (D-WFP) has earned the endorsement of the Greater Rochester Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) in her race for New York State Senate in the 56th district.

NOW: National Organization for Women“Amid recent studies that demonstrate that women are still dying in childbirth at an alarmingly high rate, it is especially poignant to have received the endorsement of our friends at the Rochester Chapter of the National Organization for Women,” Wilt said. “For as long as I can remember, NOW has been at the forefront of efforts to advance fairness and equity for women, and I am honored to be standing with them as the struggle continues in New York State, the nation, and the world.”  

“The Greater Rochester Chapter of the National Organization for Women is an active, entirely volunteer based, non-profit group dedicated to helping women live better lives,” the organization’s website says. “Rochester NOW works in support of women's health care issues, equality in the workplace, and fair treatment regardless of race or sexual orientation.”

Wilt has been an outspoken advocate for pay equity in the workplace and access to quality, affordable health care for all.  The New York Senate, along with Wilt’s incumbent Republican opponent, voted down the Fair Pay Act, which “provides that it shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer to discriminate between employees on the basis of sex, race and/or national origin by paying different wages.”  Wilt vows to champion this legislation when she reaches the capitol.
