The General Assembly session is right around the corner and we have a bold legislative agenda planned for 2020. For the first time in history, Virginians elected a pro-choice majority in the General Assembly, and sent a clear message to Richmond! Now it’s time for our elected officials to lead on protecting and expanding reproductive freedom, removing barriers to abortion access, and ensuring that all Virginians are able to make healthcare decisions that are best for their lives and their families. Now, we need your help to amplify this message!
Our legislative agenda includes:
· Protecting and expanding access to reproductive healthcare and rights;
· Paid family and medical leave;
· Preventing maternal mortality;
Make your voice heard by joining NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, and our progressive coalition partners on Monday, January 13th at the State Capitol in Richmond, Virginia.
On the day of Lobby Day, we’ll provide you with a training and materials before heading into our meetings with elected officials. Together we will share our stories and let our legislators know that the overwhelming majority of Virginians, 7 in 10, support access to safe and legal abortion, and with Roe v. Wade under threat at the Supreme Court, the time for Virginia legislators to act is now!
