Today, Jennifer Klein, Assistant to the President and Director of the Gender Policy Council, and Tom Perez, Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President and Director of the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, convened more than 30 legislative leaders from 16 states to discuss their efforts to advance proactive legislation to further safeguard reproductive rights in the upcoming 2024 legislative session.  
This convening builds on more than two dozen White House-led working meetings with state legislators in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, including an in-person convening of more than 80 state legislators from 41 states in June 2023. While Republican elected officials continue to advance extreme abortion bans in states and at the national level, legislators across the country are fighting back to protect access to reproductive health care.
White House senior officials thanked the legislators for their leadership and reaffirmed the importance of state partners in responding to attacks on reproductive freedom – including through the passage of proactive legislation to strengthen access to reproductive health care, including contraception; to protect patient privacy; and to ensure health care providers have access to the training they need to care for patients.
