We'll be holding our weekly MOMochat podcast at a special time this week, so we can talk with NARAL Pro-Choice America President Nancy Keenan: about the Tea Party wave that purported to be about fiscal responsibility but turned out to be a mob focused on eliminating reproductive freedom for women.
Keenan is a former Montana state legislator and superintendent of public instruction. In 2000, she was her district's Democratic candidate for the House of Representatives. As President of NARAL, she helped elect a new slate of pro-choice legislators in 2008. The last round of mid-term elections was a setback, but as the NARAL site points out, "In 2010, 31 NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC-endorsed congressional candidates won their races. Choice played a key role in the re-election of Sens. Michael Bennet of Colorado, Barbara Boxer of California, Patty Murray of Washington, and others."
Join NARAL Pro-Choice America and 150 students, activists and community leaders at the Power of Choice Summit on Thursday, September 15, 2011 in Los Angeles. Featuring engaging speakers and interactive presentations, summit attendees will walk away with up-to-date information about reproductive rights and the tools they need to make a difference in their community.
