Fight Forward: Engaging, Training, and Mobilizing Planned Parenthood’s Leaders

May 19 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Are you ready to join us in winning real victories in 2018?

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan would like to invite you to join us on May 19th for Fight Forward: Engaging, Training and Mobilizing Planned Parenthood’s Leaders! Fight Forward is a convening of Michigan’s most dedicated volunteers and activists. Together, we will train each other on different ways to empower and mobilize our supporter base for 2018 midterm election and 2018 Organizing Model. This is an opportunity that will allow our volunteers to meet each other from all around the state, and make everyone feel connected as one force that seeks to promote reproductive justice across the state. As a group, we will reaffirm our commitment to:

· Guarantee equitable access to safe and legal abortion, no matter the location
· Ensure access to sexual and reproductive healthcare for all
· Achieve high quality, inclusive sex education for all young people
· Build a powerful movement of strong, healthy communities
