Statement from Andrea Miller, President of the NIRH Action Fund:
“In light of the deeply disturbing and heartbreaking findings from the New York Attorney General’s independent investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations brought against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, the NIRH Action Fund calls for his immediate resignation.
We are grateful that Attorney General Letitia James and the independent investigators conducted a thorough and detailed investigation.
We trust the survivors who have come forward. We recognize the hardships faced by those who bravely spoke up about their experiences with the Governor, including the retaliation they faced from the Governor’s office and the targeted harassment they received.
Survivors everywhere and the people of New York deserve accountability and an end to the harassment, defiance, and gaslighting we’ve seen from the Governor.”
The National Institute for Reproductive Health Action Fund (NIRH Action Fund) is an advocacy group that builds political power for reproductive freedom. We elect candidates who stand up for everyone’s right to control their reproductive lives, and work with elected officials to protect and advance reproductive rights, all in partnership with allied groups in states and cities. Our strategy is to go on the offensive and focus on communities where the need is great and we can make a difference, so the fabric of reproductive freedom becomes harder to tear apart.
