Stand with Planned Parenthood: DC Bus Trip - Wednesday, July 19 - (from Planned Parenthood of Southern New England) - As the Senate continues to push forward on efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and “defund” Planned Parenthood, refusing to listen to their constituents who overwhelmingly disapprove of this plan, we are here to spell it out for them! Be with us in solidarity for a direct action on the National Mall (tentative location) in Washington DC next Wednesday, July 19 from 3-7:00 PM. Bus is leaving from New Haven (around 7:00 AM) with a stop in Stamford (around 8:30 AM) and there is no cost to you! Please contact Gretchen Raffa at 203-506-9265 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have specific questions.
