Lobby Day!

The actual lobbying part!

cameronmichelsWe just got done talking to our awesome legislators!  Many of them have done so much to defend reproductive rights in Washington. Some were not so supportive so hopefully we encouraged them to think more about their position because of our stories. It was really great of all of them who took time from their very busy schedules to discuss the importance of the Reproductive Parity Act and family planning funding.

Whether these amazing volunteers were talking to their legislators for the first time or are seasoned activists, they were super excited that their voices and stories were being heard. As someone who works in this movement every day, it is easy for me to get a little bogged down in the details. An event like today’s reaffirms why I became involved with this movement in the first place. -Cameron
