MONDAY: NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada Hosts Feminist Road Trip
NARAL Pro-Nevada and pro-choice activists will hit the road from Las Vegas up to Nevada’s state capitol where they will advocate for women’s reproductive freedom to their state representatives and senators. In particular, the NARAL members will be advocating for affordable and accessible contraception legislation sponsored by Senator Ratti and a similar measure by Speaker Frierson.
NARAL’s feminist road trip is part of a larger effort to build from the momentum of the incredible women’s march and mobilize Nevadans to unite and stand up for reproductive freedom for all. Since the women’s march, NARAL has seen an outpouring of support among women and families that want to support, volunteer, and donate their money and time to make sure their rights are protected. This unprecedented uptake of support sparked the feminist road trip and other mobilization efforts as we prepare for the upcoming fights.
|WHO:||NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada members|

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
