2011 Pro-Choice Lobby Days

Join us at the state capitols in VA, WV, and NC this year!

State legislative sessions start in January and Planned Parenthood Health Systems will be hard at work fighting bills that would restrict reproductive health and rights.  But did you know that it's your voice that means the most to your elected official?  Your legislator needs to hear from YOU about why it's so important to reject divisive attacks on abortion access and work instead to prevent unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.

If you are one of our supporters in Virginia, West Virginia, or North Carolina, join us in your state capitol for Lobby Day. You'll have the opportunity to meet other pro-choice activists from around the state, meet with your legislator, attend committee hearings, and see your state government in action.  Join us in showing our state legislators that pro-choice voices are the majority!
