Cecile Richards, President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund
for an event in support of
U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown

Thursday, June 29, 2017
The Butcher and the Brewer
2043 East Fourth Street, Cleveland, OH 44115
The new Senate healthcare bill is just as devastating as we thought. And now, we could be just days away from a Senate vote that would strip away healthcare from hundreds of thousands of Ohioans. Now more than ever, we need strong leadership in the Senate to protect healthcare providers like Planned Parenthood, which are crucial to communities like ours. That's why Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, is coming to Cleveland to support the re-election campaign of Senator Sherrod Brown. 

Contributions should be made payable to Friends of Sherrod Brown.

Please RSVP to Meg Yee at meg@sherrodbrown.com or at (916) 799-2898 no later than Monday, June 26th.

*U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown will not be in attendance.

Mahall's 20 Lanes

Lady Parts Justice League is a non-profit organization made up of comedians and musicians that uses hilarious videos and live shows to raise awareness about the horrible anti-choice legislation being passed on a daily basis, expose the politicians passing these laws, and fight abortion stigma tooth and nail. We bring our audiences together with local abortion providers and activists like YOU to grow a base of support for these clinics who are under siege from anti-choice extremists.

This summer we are going big! The LPJL Vagical Mystery Tour is an 8-week, 16-city tour across cities in the South and Midwest that are the most heavily targeted by these extremists. We're super excited to connect audiences with their local clinics and activate local pro-choice progressive communities. We are so excited to be coming to Cleveland in July!

Our shows are not only fun, but we close them with a talk-back with local abortion providers and organizers so the audience can learn about the anti-choice legislation happening in Ohio and learn all the ways folks can volunteer with clinics and local campaigns.

Come join NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio for an evening of mini-golf!
NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio is busy opposing attacks on women's ability to access safe and legal abortion, but we still like to hit the links. Come take a break from the political noise while raising money to ensure that we can keep fighting!
