I lobbied and I liked it!

One of the most exciting events that WHO/O participates in is Freedom of Choice Ohio’s annual Lobby Day. This year’s event is called 2012 Lobby Day: Storm the Statehouse. On Wednesday, March 21, from 9:30am to 1pm, we will gather at the Downtown YWCA and meet face-to-face with our state senators. This year we’ll be speaking out against Ohio’s mounting War on Women, and encourage our senators to oppose the so-called Heartbeat Bill abortion ban. We’ll be there in solidarity with our pro-choice allies, and we want you to join us! To register, sign up here.
