The Ventura County Reproductive Rights Network is hosting its signature Write For Your Rights event to bring together our community’s collective voice during a time when threats on reproductive rights are at an all time high. Recent attacks from an anti-abortion group put Planned Parenthood at serious risk of being defunded. Even though the attempt to block Planned Parenthood’s funding on the federal level failed in the Senate, women’s health still remains at risk at the state level. Write For Your Rights gives Ventura County the opportunity to tell our local and national legislators that we stand in support of women’s rights and believe reproductive rights are human rights.
The event will be from 12:30 – 2:30pm on Sunday, August 28th at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ventura (5654 Ralston Street). VCRRN will have letters on a range of reproductive health care topics prepared for the public to sign. In past years, we have collected as many as 1,500 letters during a WFYR’s event. By bundling the letters, they are sending a strong message to our elected representatives.
The event is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
The Ventura County Reproductive Rights Network is a countywide umbrella of organizations and individuals committed to educating the community about reproductive health issues and mobilizing its members in support of reproductive freedom, rights and access. In addition to the annual Write for Your Rights event, every January the VCRRN gathers signatures for its annual Roe v. Wade signature advertisement to raise social awareness about the ongoing assault on reproductive freedom.
