Even in the thick of Iowa’s summer humidity, we must remain vigilant advocates for a better Iowa. Staying involved year-round supports the activist infrastructure we need during urgent fights next legislative session. When you #AdvocateAllYear, you help build the strong coalition needed to meet each challenge we face.
This July, share your “why” with your friends on social media and lift up the fierce champions who fought for sexual and reproductive health and rights this year. Here are three ways to do just that:
- Share your “why” on your Facebook and/or Instagram stories by filling out the ‘Why I Advocate’ graphic. This fun bio will personalize the fight and encourage your friends and family to join in. Click here to download and post the social graphic now.
- Coordinate a movie night with friends to watch Plan B on Hulu. The raunchy and relatable movie features a Planned Parenthood clinic in the Midwest and illustrates how local legislation can impact access to birth control—South Dakota to be specific—and contraception for people who need it. Learn more about Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund's praise of the film here.
- Share our posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram about champions from this year’s legislative session. These extraordinary legislators stood up to be a voice for all of us in the face of intense opposition. Showing your support for their work is crucial—even when they are unsuccessful in blocking dangerous bills, they need to know that their advocacy is seen and appreciated.
Thank you for continuing to support Planned Parenthood and #AdvocateAllYear. We are excited to learn all about you and celebrate legislative champions with your help this month. Check back in August for three more ways to stand with Planned Parenthood.
