Next week, the Virginia General Assembly begins what is shaping up to be an extremely challenging legislative session for choice. Anti-choice legislators are already gearing up to launch assaults on abortion access, birth control, and comprehensive sex education that could have devastating effects for the future of reproductive freedom in Virginia!
It is imperative that pro-choice Virginians like us come together and make sure our voices are heard. We must present a united front and let our lawmakers know that women’s rights, privacy and health are not political bargaining chips.
That’s why I hope you’ll join NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, the Virginia Pro-Choice Coalition, and nearly 500 other citizen-activists from across the state for Pro-Choice Lobby Day in Richmond on January 27!
Pro-Choice Lobby Day!
Date: Thursday, January 27, 2011
Time: 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
Address: General Assembly
9th Street & Broad Street
The day will feature amazing pro-choice speakers, break-out sessions, and opportunities to tell your elected officials the importance of protecting reproductive choice in the Commonwealth. Keep checking our website for updates and more details!
Be sure to register online with our pro-choice coalition partners Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia. Don’t want to drive to Lobby Day? We’ll have several buses to bring activists from different parts of the state. You can purchase your bus ticket, which includes the cost of your lunch, when you register. We also have bus ticket subsidies available for those who may not otherwise be able to join us. Check online for more information on buses.
Remember, choice is a fragile liberty we must vehemently protect. I hope you’ll join us to take a stand for your pro-choice values during this crucial legislative session.
