In addition to outreach and education, ADVOCATES engages in direct political action to achieve reproductive justice.
Legislative action involves working against bills that restrict access to women’s reproductive health and sex education, and for pro-active bills both in Jefferson City and Washington, DC. We work year-round to build an energetic and educated grassroots movement with a focus on women’s reproductive and sexual health care issues, comprehensive sex education, and access to abortion.
There are a variety of ways you can get involved. This can be anything from writing letters to the editor, attending community outreach events and canvassing, making phone calls, going to Jefferson City to talk to legislators, and participating in a variety of visibility events. You will be with lots of other like-minded Planned Parenthood supporters!
GET OUT THE VOTE
ADVOCATES needs lots of volunteers to help make sure we have the right people making our laws. Our work involves message training, door-to-door canvassing, supporter phone-banks, mail, and a full range of Get Out The Vote activities
Candidate screening and endorsements in Federal races are conducted by Planned Parenthood Action Fund in Washington, DC with input from state affiliates.
