44 Market Street, Attica

A father and his paraplegic son in Attica are safe today after their home caught fire. According to the Village of Attica Fire Department, an officer spotted the fire yesterday afternoon, and fire crews were sent to the home at 44 Market Street. It was a two-alarm house fire believed to have started on the porch. Several other fire departments had to help assist because the AFD did not have enough manpower at the time of the blaze. Their Chief, Jay Myers noted that that is becoming a serious problem because these days, people don’t volunteer like they used to. Crews were able to get father and son out safely; the only injuries were minor and occurred during rescue. The home is considered a total loss and the investigation into the cause of the fire continues.

Governor Kathy Hochul today announced $35 million will be available to directly support abortion providers…this is in anticipation of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. Governor Hochul directed the Department of Health to create a $25 million Abortion Provider Support Fund for the providers to both expand capacity and ensure access for patients seeking abortion care in New York. The Governor also announced $10 million for reproductive health care centers to access security grants through the Division of Criminal Justice Services to help ensure the safety of the providers performing this care.


State Attorney General Letitia James

New York State officials are working to expand access to abortions as the Supreme Court decides the future of Roe v. Wade. Attorney General Letitia James is supporting legislation that would create the Reproductive Freedom and Equity Program to increase access to care for all patients, even those from out of state. James says the program would put funds toward abortion care providers and affiliated non-profits. According to the CDC, 7000 of the abortion procedures performed in New York in 2019 were for people from out of state. That number is expected to more than quadruple if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

All of the food collected from this campaign will go to FoodLink.
