The Act for Women campaign is partnering with key state organizations to build out the ground game for the Women’s Health Protection Act. These advocates will advance the Act through community education, engagement with members of Congress, state and local policy initiatives, grassroots mobilization, and more.
In Colorado, a coalition of three organizations—Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR), NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Foundation, and Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains—will educate their constituencies about the need for the Act. The coalition will mobilize supporters to call on local, state, and federal lawmakers to take action for reproductive health, rights, and justice.
Michigan and Ohio are neighboring states at the front lines of some of the worst pending abortion restrictions in the country. As a result, some women are forced to leave their home state to seek abortion care elsewhere. A new organization known as Reclaim, along with NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation, will ensure the story of the impact of abortion restrictions on Ohioans and Michiganders informs the Act for Women and reaches the members of Congress who need to hear it.
In Tennessee, SisterReach will approach the Act for Women campaign from a reproductive justice perspective, highlighting how the passage of the Women’s Health Protection Act would positively affect low-income and rural women, and women and girls of color.
In Virginia, members of the Virginia Latina Advocacy Network of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health will activate their constituency in support of this important bill.
