You are invited to a Special presentation

May 13, 2014 

6:00pm-7:00p

Planned Parenthood Health Center

(5400 Ralston Street; Ventura, CA 93003)

Katalina Navarro will be at the RRN meeting this Tuesday to give a report on the lobbying effort and other activities at Planned Parenthood's annual Capitol Day 

and Evan Clark is preparing a short video to share his experience in Sacramento.


The following are the three bill that Capitol Day attendees discussed with legislators.
AB 1805 (Skinner/Pan) Restoring Medi-Cal Reimbursement Rates 
SB 899 (Mitchell) Eliminating the CalWORKS Family Grant Cap 
SB 1005 (Lara) Health Care for All


Stand with us on Tuesday, March 25, 2014!


When: Tuesday, March 25, 5-6pm

Where: Ventura (Corner of Victoria Ave. & Telephone Rd.)

On Tuesday, March 25, the Supreme Court will hear opening arguments for the Hobby Lobby case, one of the two cases where lawyers will argue that corporations should have the power to deny employees access to birth control coverage based on the employer's personal religious objections. 

 

Bosses should not be able to deny women preventive health care based on their personal beliefs.  Birth control decisions are personal, and bosses have no right to impose their views on employees.  What will these bosses object to next?

 

We need to let our community know what’s at stake in this Supreme Court cases! These cases could create, for the first time in American history, legal precedent allowing for-profit corporations to claim a right to religious freedom that would allow them to claim exemptions from a whole host of generally applicable laws.


Join us for a visibility rally that day to show your support for access to birth control coverage for all women!  We’ll bring the signs.


If you can’t join the rally, you can honk in support as you drive by!  Feel free to share this email.

 

RSVPing to anna.lopez@ppsbvslo.org if you plan on attending is highly encouraged, but feel free to stop by even if you forget to do so.  See you Tuesday!
