During this time, a slew of reproductive rights advocates showed up and pinked out their representatives’ events.here’s still time in the #ResistanceRecess to show your leaders in Congress you stand with Planned Parenthood! If you do one thing today, RSVP to an in-person event near you.

Defender of the Week

Our star defender of the week: Megan D. (30, CA) is passionate about gaming — so when she wanted to step up for Planned Parenthood, it only made sense for her to spearhead #Play4PP, a 24-hour gaming marathon supporting Planned Parenthood. She and her community of gamers have already raised over $13,500, and they’re still going strong in the run up to the marathon in March. Thank you Megan for your passion and dedication to supporting and protecting Planned Parenthood!

These are the top three ways you can protect reproductive rights across the country, including care at Planned Parenthood health centers.
