Strong Families is excited to co-sponsor an event with Laurel Fertility Care to celebrate their recent policy win (AB 2356)! This new law ensures that same-sex couples and singles who are using known donor sperm and seeking fertility treatment do not have to undergo delays (e.g. unnecessary screening, freezing) before accessing this treatment. Currently, hetero-couples do not have to experience this kind of barriers and delay. Consequently, this new law expands equity for same-sex and singles to get the same treatment as hetero-couples.

Please join us on Thursday, Nov. 29 at the Rockwood Leadership Institute (426 17th Street, 4th Floor) in Oakland from 6-8pm.

Laurel Fertility Care is a clinic that has emerged to do policy work this year and are building a network with physicians, OBs, and nurse practitioners throughout the state on how to provide respect, recognition and equal access to fertility treatment for same-sex couples, singles, and HIV-positive folks who need support in getting pregnant.
