We are fortunate in Rhode Island to have members of Congress who really do a lot of great work to support the health and needs of women and families in our state. That is why THIS WEEK, we are calling on them to do all they can to protect the right to abortion and pass the Reproductive Health Care Act THIS YEAR.
Yes, we know it is a state bill, but these are folks with some power and who have shown a commitment to making sure that the policies that impact our lives are ones that create positive change. So we need their help. And that means that we need your help!
- Today, Wednesday, March 27th from 3-4pm (or whenever you can make the time), call Senator Sheldon Whitehouse at (401) 453-5294 and/or (202) 224-2921 to say thank you for supporting the right to abortion AND ask him to help push to pass the Reproductive Health Care Act (S152A) in 2019!
- On Thursday, March 28th from 3-4pm we are calling Senator Jack Reed at (401) 943-3100 and/or (202) 224-4642 to thank him for his commitment to abortion access and ask that he help to urge passage of the RHCA this year.
- On Friday, March 29th we are rounding out the week with calls to Rep. David Cicilline at (401) 729-5600 and/or (202) 225-4911 to commend his support of the right to abortion and ask him to speak out in support of passing the Reproductive Health Care Act and protecting that right.
We need to pull out all the stops!
Please, call TODAY! We need their support and leadership.
- After you call (PLEASE CALL), you can post on social media using their handles (@SenWhitehouse, @SenJackReed and @RepCicilline) – here is a sample: @SenWhitehouse, thank you for supporting the right to abortion. I am urging you to help push @RIsenate to #passtheRHCA (S152A) this year! We need to protect our rights. Please, help #passtheRHCA this year! #repro4RI
THE TIME IS NOW, but we simply cannot do this without you! Make sure to visit our events page and find an action you can take or reach out to our postcarding leader, Deb to get a packet and do postcards from home.
We also hope to see you THIS WEEKEND at our fun and fabulous FUNdraiser on Sunday, March 31st!
