Town Hall: the Arizona Legislature
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm May 11, 2022
Join Equality Arizona and our partners from Progress Arizona and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona for a town hall on the state of public policy in the Arizona legislature. In the face of unprecedented attacks on voting rights, reproductive freedom, and LGBTQ+ equality, solidarity between causes is crucial to protect all of us. In this town hall we’ll discuss the legislation we’ve seen this session and the best strategies to push back. Send your questions in when you register, and we’ll answer them live!
