Speak out with Virginia Pro-Choice Coalition on Reproductive Freedom

In addition to the constant calls for an end to comprehensive sex education and restrictions on birth control, conservative protesters in my neighbor state of Virginia have been pushing legislators to adopt tougher rules for abortion providers, something that could reportedly shut down up to 17 of the state’s 21 clinics. But the Virginia Pro-Choice coalition is pushing back. Come join them on Thursday, January 27, and let our officials know that reproductive freedom is not up for debate!

Pro-Choice Lobby Day will run on January 27, 2011 from 8am to 2pm at the Richmond General Assembly, and will feature pro-choice speakers, break-out sessions, and opportunities to tell your elected officials the importance of protecting reproductive choice in the Commonwealth. If you’re interested, you can register here with pro-choice coalition partners Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia; bus tickets from different parts of the state (as well as subsidies for those who might not be able to attend) are available during the registration process. More information for Pro-Choice Lobby Day is below; questions can be sent to Joseph Richards at 202.530.4168 or joey@naralva.org.

    I dont’ live in VA, and I can’t travel there. Is there any way Non-Virginians can show their support?

    • mirandanyc says:

      The Lobby Day is VA-specific; that is, activists are getting together to speak with Virginia politicians and legislators. But certainly feel free to contact Joey for information about pro-choice support more broadly! He was super helpful and resourceful in our email exchange.
