NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia activists gathered last night in Alexandria for a training on how to better articulate our pro-choice values to neighbors, legislators and friends.
NARAL Virginia conducts message trainings to help our activists communicate a positive, values-based message about real solutions to prevent unintended pregnancy and reduce the need for abortion. And that’s more important than ever this year as we gear up for the 2009 election cycle.
During a great conversation last night, we discussed a lot of issues including how to talk about freedom of choice in a religious context, how to combat misinformation about the Freedom of Choice Act, and why we support commonsense, common-ground measures like the Birth Control Protection Act.
Thanks to everyone who came out to help us make this first Talking About Choice training a huge success! And for those of you who live in other parts of Virginia—stay tuned! We’ll be hosting other choice message trainings around the state in the coming months.
