Since 2010, over 2,000 reproductive health provisions have been introduced in legislatures across the country.  Many of these provisions undermine women’s health by cutting basic health services and restricting access to breast exams, cancer screenings, birth control, and abortion.  Many of the women most affected by these cuts are low-income, immigrant women and women of color – the same women who are often most disenfranchised from the civic engagement process.  This session explored how issue-focused organizations are developing strategies that enable them to engage their constituents in civic participation efforts in order to advance their missions.
