Freedom of Choice Ohio Lobby Day
April 13, 2016

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has just signed one of the most sweeping anti-choice laws in the nation—one that could have devastating implications for public health services across the state. To respond, Freedom of Choice Ohio will hold our annual Advocacy Day on April 13, 2016. This year, Ohio women and men will gather at the Ohio Statehouse to demand an end to the anti-woman agenda pushed by Governor Kasich and the legislature. Recently, Kasich has defunded Planned Parenthood and is using his Department of Health to harass abortion providers. We’ll learn more about the multiple threats to reproductive health care, including anti-abortion bills still pending in the legislature and our Access Without Apology legislative agenda. Armed with information and training, participants will engage their legislators to show that their constituents do not support abortion bans or attacks on funding.

Tentative Agenda (subject to change):
9:30 a.m. – Registration and light breakfast
10 a.m. – Welcome and keynote speaker
11 a.m. – Training
12 p.m. – Lunch
1 p.m. – Rally at Statehouse
11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Meeting with individual legislators (FOCO will make appointments for you)
Register here. You will receive an updated agenda, directions and parking suggestions, and your legislative meeting assignments when we are closer to the event date.

Help build a pro-choice Ohio. Every day, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio fights to protect access to the full range of reproductive health care options—including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and safe & legal abortion care. We educate the public about the real threat to women’s healthcare posed by anti-choice legislation and policies. We mobilize pro-choice Ohioans to take political action to defend reproductive rights. And we are the voice for Ohio’s abortion clinics, helping them navigate the increasingly hostile climate created by extremist groups. But we need your help. As a member organization, we rely on your financial support to fund our important legislative, educational, and grassroots activities.
