Planned Parenthood Story Slam

Where: Oxbow Blending and Bottling, 49 Washington Ave, Portland

Stories have the power to unite people through a common narrative, and when we don’t tell those stories we miss the opportunity to bring people together.

Join us for a powerful evening as supporters, patients, and volunteers share humorous, heartfelt, and moving stories about Planned Parenthood and reproductive health care.

If you are under 21, your parent or guardian must be with you.

Protect Planned Parenthood & ObamaCare rally

When: Thursday, May 4, 5:00 p.m.

Where: Congress Square Park, Portland

UPDATE: The House has passed the bill. Now we need to #KilltheBill in the Senate. Join us today – make sure our senators know we are watching.

Congressional leaders are trying again to repeal ObamaCare and block patients from going to Planned Parenthood. This bill is worse than the first—they think they can get away with it because they think we are too tired to fight back. Let’s prove them wrong.

12-month Birth Control Bill Public Hearing

When: Tuesday, April 18th, 1:00 p.m.

Where: Insurance and Financial Services Committee, room 220 of the Cross Office Building, 210 State Street Augusta

Sign up to attend here

99% of women will use some method of birth control in their lifetime — that’s why convenient access is essential to a woman’s health and future planning. But most Maine insurance corporations allow a woman to obtain up only one or three months of birth control at a time, creating an unnecessary obstacle to navigate.

LD 1237 will change the current law so women can get up to 12 months of birth control at time. Help us pink out the public hearing for this bill! And if your legislator is on the Insurance and Financial Services Committee, email them to support increased access to birth control.
