Organize a dedicated volunteer base to knock on doors and make phone calls to educate the community on reproductive rights and issues.

Host public events to advance the belief that women and doctors are qualified to make health care decisions without restrictions imposed by external political or religious ideologies.

Collect and share patient stories to demonstrate that there should be no barriers for anyone to obtain basic health care.

Encourage everyone to vote, and work to register members of the community.
