Protect Reproductive Rights by Sharing Your Stories

Official Action for Saturday, August 11

With the Brett M. Kavanaugh’s nomination to the SCOTUS, we are facing what may be the greatest threat to reproductive freedom of this generation. As with the Affordable Care Act, victory is possible, but it will take a fight in the Senate. So Patty Murray is asking for your stories to help her show how devastating Kavanaugh’s appointment will be:

“Our stories and your voices are going to make the difference in stopping Judge Kavanaugh.
Do you have a story that shows why reproductive rights matter to you? Share it now and make your voice heard.”

Let’s continue our efforts to give Sen. Murray what she needs to fight this fight! Share your stories at

Join us on Monday to show support for America’s most important conservation program, the Land & Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)! Despite enormous bipartisan popularity, LWCF will expire in 51 days if Congress does not save it. This incredibly successful program uses zero taxpayer dollars and protects places all over our state and our country so that we all have the opportunity to get outside.

Senator Maria Cantwell is hosting a rally in Green Lake Park to urge Congress to save LWCF, our country’s most critical tool for preserving public lands large and small. Come over to the playfields next to Green Lake Community Center.
