Community Empowerment

Immediately following the November elections, NARAL Pro-Choice Washington hosted a Speak Out! Lift Up! series, with the goal of bringing communities together to discuss the imminent threat of a Trump presidency. NARAL Pro-Choice Washington was overjoyed to see so many engaged members and activists. The series was a huge success - THANKS TO YOU!

Over 200 people attended 5 workshops across Washington state. Collectively we told our stories, listened to our neighbors, and came together after a challenging election season to build strategies for moving forward.

 

  • You asked for more information, and we heard you loud and clear! NARAL Pro-Choice Washington will be including more frequent updates on the legislative process and ways to get involved. If you haven't already, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and sign up for our every-other-week Activist Update to stay up to date.

  • You want to share your personal stories and your pro-choice values. Story sharing is one of the most effective long term strategies for swaying public opinion. At several meetings, folks talked about challenging themselves to talk to at least one person every day about what reproductive freedom means to them. Many of you also stressed the importance of sharing a personal story rather than arguing over statistics. Lastly, we discussed the value of bringing the conversation about reproductive freedom to other groups that that work on intersecting issues, like healthcare, pay equity, immigration, environmentalism and homelessness.

  • Start a group at your high school, college campus, or in your neighborhood. A great way to affect change is by organizing in your own back yard! Start a book club, pro-choice meet-up or a NARAL student group at your high school or college. We can help you with ideas and strategies, contact Natalia@ProChoiceWashington.org . if you need help building on this idea.


Spring 2017 Political Action Workshop Series

Thank you for making our Spring 2017 Political Action Workshop series a success! Together we came together for seven workshops in six different communities across western Washington to talk about political strategy, tactics for pro-choice activism, and to hear from you about what matters to your communities most.

If you missed out on attending our free, in-person workshops, don't worry! You can catch up by watching our online webinar coming soon - stay tuned.

This workshop is designed for anyone who is interested in learning more about how to make an impact on legislation at the state level. The training has an emphasis on reproductive freedom but also covers tactics that can be applied to any movement. It also contains our pro-choice legislative update on the 2017 legislative session.
