Reno: Mar Monte Mondays – virtual event with our Reno team

When: Monday, Sept. 26 at 6 p.m.,

Mar Monte Mondays is a virtual program hosted by our Reno team. Every other Monday on Zoom, we talk to community advocates about a post-Roe world and the intersectional impacts the recent disastrous Supreme Court decision may have in Nevada.

During Mar Monte Mondays, our "Digital Discussions" showcase how community advocates in the area can engage in civic activities with the help of local resources, partner coalitions, and innovative digital toolkits crafted by our Reno team.

 

Alameda County: Civic Celebrations – How to Flex Our Power in Community 

When: Saturday, Oct. 1 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Where: Virtual 
RSVP HERE

Join us for our upcoming training to learn about how you can focus on joy and community while inspiring others to vote this November! 

This training is designed to prepare supporters to host ballot discussions of their own in whatever format that makes most sense to them—whether it’s an outdoor BBQ, cocktail party, Zoom session, or schmooze at your local pub. Note: this is an Alameda County-specific event. 

Other than statewide races and propositions, we will only be covering open positions and measures that have jurisdiction in Alameda County.

 

Pledge to Vote in November!

Sign our pledge and commit to voting in this election.

Elections are vital to effecting societal change, including protecting rights of trans people, combatting hate crime, and increasing workplace protections for the LGBTQ+ community as well as championing racial justice, education equity, and health care- access. Your vote is one of the most powerful ways you can influence issues that matter to you and your community.

The right to vote is a pillar of our democracy and essential to having freedom to make our own health care decisions.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION - RESOURCES AND LINKS TO LEARN AND TAKE ACTION

 

Read I’m the Head of Planned Parenthood. We’re Done Making Excuses for Our Founder. via the NY Times, an op-ed from Alexis McGill Johnson, the president and chief executive of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. We must reckon with Margaret Sanger’s association with white supremacist groups and eugenics, and we hope our volunteers and supporters join us in this work.

 

Alexis McGill Johnson called for us to lend more support to intersecting issues, especially to organizations led by and focusing on issues that impact Black women and other women of color as well as trans and nonbinary people. Here are some resources to get started:

  • Learn more about reproductive justice from the largest national multi-ethnic reproductive justice organization, SisterSong.
  • Support the Transgender Law Center, the largest national trans-led organization advocating self-determination for all people, and Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement, which works at local and national levels to achieve the collective liberation of trans, queer, and gender nonconforming Latinxs.

 

SELF-CARE RESOURCES
