We just showed how powerful grassroots advocacy can be with our trifecta win on November 5th– and now, with the first pro-choice majority in the General Assembly in decades, the opportunity to create bold, proactive change is finally within reach. With reproductive healthcare bills already filed ahead of the 2020 session, we know that reproductive healthcare will be a top issue. But that doesn’t mean it will be easy.
Candidates across the state campaigned on reproductive rights this past election– and we showed up for them: knocking doors, mobilizing voters, and showing up at the polls. Now it’s time they show up for us. As a member of our Legislative Rapid Response Team, you’ll effect change on a grassroots level and ensure reproductive rights are a top priority for Virginia legislators.
We distill all the complex, often-confusing political happenings during legislative session into short, digestible action alerts straight to your inbox. When legislators take action on reproductive rights, we’ll send you an action elert, notifying you of what happened and what we need you to do in response. Each alert includes a short ask and model language so you feel confident and comfortable taking action. Each alert is catered to your specific district and the specific things you tell us you’re interested in: meaning we’ll never ask something of you that you’re not comfortable with.
With a pro-choice majority in the General Assembly for the first time in decades, it’s crucial that in 2020 we have a strong Legislative Rapid Response Team ready to protect and expand reproductive rights in our Commonwealth. This is our chance to make sure our legislators keep their campaign promises and turn Virginia into the safe-haven for reproductive freedom. But we can’t do it without your help. Can we count on you?
