Prop Talks

Democrats,

Abortion freedom is LITERALLY on the ballot this November, along with other critical issues. Don’t miss out this Wednesday, September 21 for the first PropTalk of the year.

Join CADEM and hear from policy experts, community advocates, and Democratic leaders on Yes on Prop 1. Prop 1 will add the right to an abortion directly into the California State Constitution to ensure that, in California, people continue to have the power to control their own bodies and personal decisions.
