Are you pro-choice and under 35? If so, we’d love to see you at our League of Young Leaders kick-off event tomorrow night, Thursday, October 7 in Arlington!
As a woman’s right to choose and ability to access reproductive health care comes under increasingly fierce attack on both the federal and state levels, it is vital that young members of the pro-choice community (you!) show just how much that right matters. That’s why our national organization, NARAL Pro-Choice America, has been asking people under 30 to share why they believe in the right to choose. (If you submit your answer by the end of the day today, October 6, your response could be featured on the NARAL Pro-Choice America website and in our print publications!)
Young pro-choice people also have an opportunity to do more on the local level to protect reproductive freedom here in Virginia. Join our League of Young Leaders and see what an important difference you can make!
The League of Young Leaders (LoYL) is the new young professionals group of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia. Its mission is to engage and develop young leaders for the purpose of strengthening and supporting our work through advocacy, outreach, and philanthropy. LoYL is open to anyone ages 21-35 who supports the mission of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia and wants to be part of a unique, proactive group of pro-choice young people. Future LoYL activities will include happy hours, house parties, campaign events, advocacy trainings, lobby days, and networking events.
The event details are below – we hope you can join us! If you can’t make it tomorrow night but want to keep in touch and find out how you as a young person can get more involved in NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia’s work, follow LoYL on Facebook or Twitter or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
