A group of nine people—whose decision doesn’t reflect the views of the vast majority of Americans — erased 50 years of progress, and the ability for women to control their bodies and pave their own path by overturning the decision of Roe v Wade.
Responding to anticipated changes in reproductive healthcare laws in certain states in the U.S., Ready Set Rocket quickly implemented a benefit to support our employees across the country—40% of our team lives outside of the agency’s home base in New York—by providing travel reimbursements and leave for those who live in places without access to women’s health care or abortions.
