PORTLAND, Oregon - The statewide political voice for Planned Parenthood will mobilize activists from across Oregon for "Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon Day of Action" on Wednesday, April 17th in Salem. Between 11:55am and 12:10pm, about 100 Oregonians will march to the Capitol to advocate for reproductive rights before meeting with their elected representatives.

The lobby visits are essential to educate politicians about legislation that will affect Oregon women and working families. Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon strongly supports efforts to guarantee paid family and medical leave; to ensure drivers licenses for all; and to make investments so that Oregonians can access the essential reproductive care they need and so that young people can access the sex education they deserve to help them stay healthy and plan their futures.
