Aug. 27 — Ventura County Reproductive Rights Network to present Annual Write for Your Rights event

August 1, 2017

VENTURA — The Ventura County Reproductive Rights Network is hosting its signature Write For Your Rights event to bring together our community’s collective voice during a time when threats to reproductive rights are at an all time high. Attempts to block Planned Parenthood’s funding on the federal level continue in Congress, while women’s health still remains at risk at the state level. Write For Your Rights gives Ventura County the opportunity to tell our local and national legislators that we stand in support of women’s rights and believe reproductive rights are human rights.

The event will be from 12:30 – 2:30pm on Sunday, August 27th at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ventura (5654 Ralston Street). VCRRN will have letters on a range of reproductive health care topics prepared for the public to sign. In past years, we have collected as many as 1,500 letters during a WFYR event.  By bundling the letters, we are sending a strong message from our community to our elected representatives.

The event is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Ample parking is provided in the lot in the rear of the building

Participating and supporting organizations include:

  • ACLU – SC Ventura County Chapter
  • CAUSE – Central Coast Alliance for a Sustainable Economy
  • Conejo Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
  • League of Women Voters of Ventura County
  • Planned Parenthood Central Coast Action Fund
  • Planned Parenthood California Central Coast
  • Planned Parenthood Generation Action at CSUCI
  • Temple Beth Torah
  • Unitarian Universalist Church of Ventura Social Action Coordinating Committee

The Ventura County Reproductive Rights Network is a countywide umbrella of organizations and individuals committed to educating the community about reproductive health issues and mobilizing its members in support of reproductive freedom, rights and access. In addition to the annual Write for Your Rights event, every January the VCRRN gathers signatures for its annual Roe v. Wade signature advertisement to raise social awareness about the ongoing assault on reproductive freedom.
