UHPP Teach-in: “Women Running for Office. How can you run?”

“Women Running for Office. How can you run?”

Join our panel Dina Refkin from the University at Albany Center for Women in Government and Civil Society, The Honorable Dorcey Applyrs, Common Councilwomen and the Honorable Lynne Lekakis, Albany County Legislature to discuss how and why more women should run for local office. We will encourage women to run for public office by demystifying the experience and empowering you to unleash your leadership potential. We will help, ask, encourage, and connect women as we move toward the next election season.

There is uncertainty ahead and Planned Parenthood is facing renewed attacks. But, one thing is for sure — we will never back down, and we will never stop fighting to make sure that our patients are able to access the care they need. The days ahead will not be easy, but we will all work together to ensure that Planned Parenthood is here, caring for patients, for the next 100 years.

Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood is launching a monthly series of “Teach-in” events to equip our supporters on various topics facing Planned Parenthood and reproductive rights in the months and years ahead.

Note: UHPP has reschedule this panel event due to the Jewish holiday. We overlooked the first day of Passover on the calendar when we selected the date. We changed the date from Monday April 10 to Monday April 24.

Events will be held at the Albany health center, 855 Central Avenue from 6 to 8 pm.
