More than 260 volunteers in California have joined Planned Parenthood action fund events this cycle to reach out to voters – knocking on doors, making phone calls, and getting the word out about where candidates stand on women’s health issues. This final push will make a big difference – we’re still going full speed as we continue until the polls close on Election Day – thanks so much to all the volunteers who are standing strong with us to keep on reaching voters all way through.
Hot Spot: Congressional District 26, Julia Brownley
Volunteers worked hard all weekend long to reach more than one thousand doors and speak with hundreds of voters – this race is going to be very close and we’ve found that many voters didn’t know where candidates in this race stand on reproductive health. Julia Brownley is a champion for women and it is critical that we continue to educate voters to let them know that Julia is the only candidate who will stand up for women’s health.
Hot Spot: Assembly District 65, Sharon Quirk-Silva
What an amazing weekend of action! Just in the last two days we’ve knocked more than two thousanad doors and spoken with hundreds of voters in Assembly District 65. You may not be aware, but Sharon Quirk-Silva is a champion for women’s health, huge supporter of medically accurate sex education, stands strong for affordable birth control, and can be trusted to protect reproductive healthcare access. That’s why we’re so energized to be working on the ground to inform voters and urge them to vote for Sharon Quirk-Silva!
All across the state we’ve identified races where women’s health is at risk from politicians who oppose reproductive health care and support harmful public policies such as opposing no-copay birth control. Across the state this election cycle we’ve activated more than 260 volunteers, knocking on more than 12,000 doors to speak directly with over 4,000 voters, made more than 100,000 calls and spoken with more than 5,750 voters on the phone and we’re still going strong with more outreach through Election Day.
