As we commemorate the 101st anniversary of suffrage for many American women, we also recognize the ongoing fight for voting rights. States across the country have introduced a surge of legislation that would make it harder to cast a ballot, particularly targeting people of color, people with low-income, and young people. Voter suppression directly impedes our ability to control our bodies and plan our futures. These political attacks are a tremendous threat to what we stand for. 

Cocktails for a Cause will feature an exciting panel discussion on Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic’s role in getting out the vote in 2022,  and standing against voter suppression. Register today!

Your support makes it possible for Planned Parenthood Votes! West Virginia PAC to expand and protect reproductive health and rights in West Virginia.

Climate, Jobs, and Justice: A Forum on West Virginia’s Future

The West Virginia Climate Alliance and a number of other organizations are holding a virtual public forum on Tuesday, August 24th from 7 to 8:30 pm. Climate, Jobs and Justice: A public forum on West Virginia’s future is designed to educate and inform the public where climate policy stands in Congress and what people can do to impact this policy. Collin O’Mara, President and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation, will be joined by Pam Nixon of West Virginia NAACP, Jeremy Richardson of Unions of Concerned Scientist, and Sean O’Leary of Ohio River Valley Institute. It’s a great lineup.

Over the next two months we will either adopt significant policy addressing the climate crisis or fail once again to make meaningful reforms. Please join us for this important discussion.
