You can become active in the pro-choice movement right from your own home.
In Columbus on May 21, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation will train volunteers in communications techniques that fill in the gaps of inadequate or incomplete media coverage; add balance to biased and one-sided reporting; and pursue topics and points of view that are being ignored. We will also prepare Ohioans for the ramifications of the pending Supreme Court decision on abortion access, as well as the confirmation battle to fill the vacancy on the Court.
Training will focus on ways to effectively participate in media techniques such as:
- Letters to the Editor
- Social Media
- Talk Radio
- Blog posts
- News coverage
- Becoming a trusted source for reporters
It’s said that “all politics is local,” and the same goes for media strategies. No one knows what’s going on in your community better than you do—what local elected officials are saying, how the local press is handling news about choice, what your friends and neighbors are saying to each other face-to-face and online. Your advocacy and activism on the local level is critical to our statewide success.
Find out more about this important opportunity to get our message out. There’s never been a more important time for our voices to be heard.
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.
