Saturday, on the 4th anniversary of the first Women’s March, The Florida Planned Parenthood PAC, alongside local activists and partners, will gather at the State Capitol. They will announce a robust plan to hold opponents of women’s rights accountable and elect candidates in 2020 who will expand access to reproductive health care in Florida.
“While health care is a top concern and abortion access is under threat like never before, there are many other issues at stake in 2020,” said Lillian Tamayo, Chair of the Florida Planned Parenthood PAC. “Here in Florida, family separations, systemic racism, attacks on the rights of the LGBTQIA community and the scourge of gun violence impact all of us. That’s why we’re committed to launching our largest electoral program ever in 2020, to help spur the change we need to see at the state and national level”
What: Announcement of 2020 election plan and rally in support of Roe v. Wade, and in solidarity with Women’s Marches taking place across the U.S.
