    We will discuss the restrictive laws sweeping the country, the politicization of women’s healthcare, what is at stake for Planned Parenthood in the 2020 elections, and how to further support and get involved in Planned Parenthood’s domestic and international campaigns.

Her team works with Planned Parenthood affiliates across the country to plan and execute legislative and electoral campaigns.

She moved on to coalition work and ran the America Votes table in Florida in 2008 and the State Voices table in Virginia from 2009- 2012.
