Get Into It: Meet Us In Richmond to Protest TRAP Laws!

Via Virginia Coalition to Protect Women's Health.
By Alyssa Seidorf

Join us as we fight to protect Virginia’s reproductive health clinics!

As a proud partner of the Virginia Coalition to Protect Women’s Health, FMF is asking students to join us at the Virginia Board of Health meeting on Dec. 4 – that’s this week Thursday!  The Virginia Board of Health will meet to decide whether medically unnecessary restrictions on women’s health centers – commonly referred to as TRAP – should be amended.  Join us and speak out in favor of rules based in medicine, not politics!

As young women, we rely on these health centers to provide us with comprehensive health care so that we can be in charge of our own reproductive choices.  On Dec. 4, these clinics need us to speak up and tell the Board of Health what their services mean to us.

Join us in Richmond to stand up for our rights and protect our clinics. You can RSVP here!  Also, spread the word by inviting your friends to the Facebook event!

WHAT: Virginia Board of Health meeting

WHEN: Thursday, Dec. 4, 9 a.m.

WHERE: The Perimeter Center, 9960 Mayland Drive, Richmond, VA 23233

Be sure to get in contact with our National Campus Organizer, Alyssa, so you can meet up with the rest of the group and get your hands on some feminist swag! You can contact her via email at [email protected]!

See you Thursday!
