Thank you 2019 Capitol Day Participants
On April 10, over 50 Planned Parenthood Central Coast Action Fund supporters traveled to Sacramento and gave their time and energy to fight for reproductive rights. They also had the opportunity to speak truth to power to their elected officials and Planned Parenthood Champions.
The theme of this year’s Capitol Day was “This is Health Care.” Planned Parenthood has been a leading source of sexual and reproductive health information, education, and advocacy for over hundred years. Planned Parenthood affiliates operate 108 health centers in California, delivering more than 1 million patient visits annually. Over 700 Supporters from across the state gathered to meet with legislators to share their stories and support new funding to increase access to essential health care services through Governor Newsom’s proposed historic investment of $100 million for reproductive health services in his budget.
PPCCAF is grateful to work alongside dedicated, enthusiastic advocates. Special thanks to the Fund for Santa Barbara for underwriting the cost of transportation to Sacramento.
