About the event

CNMA has been on a legislative winning streak! And we’ve still got so much to do to improve reproductive health, rights & justice in the communities we serve and to make sure all people who live in California have access to midwifery care. We’re building power in California to achieve our goals! 

Come meet some of the team that is making this possible, and learn about what we’ve been doing and where we are going. This is also your opportunity to find out how you can join CNMA for Reproductive Freedom Week with the California Coalition for Reproductive Freedom.

Get involved!

This year instead of a CNMA focused lobby day, we are joining forces with our partners at California Coalition for Reproductive Freedom in the annual Reproductive Freedom Week (RFW). RFW is a fun and exciting way to make a difference in shaping policies that impact reproductive health, rights, and justice in California. There will be many virtual lobbying opportunities to fit your schedule. The event is geared toward people who are new to advocacy work, and is an opportunity to build confidence and get comfortable in the lobbying sphere, while making a difference!

  • April 5th 5-6pm Legislative Training on Zoom (will be recorded)

This will be an opportunity to learn how lobbying works, why it’s important and help you feel confident talking with your legislators!

  • April 7 5-6pm RFW Bill Docket Event on Zoom (will be recorded)

At this event, the sponsors of the bills we are going to be lobbying for will give us information and background on the bills. The CCRF team is picking our priority bills right now, they are guaranteed to be important reproductive health rights and justice bills!

  • April 11-15 (various times) Reproductive Freedom Week - Virtual Lobbying Week

The CCRF team will schedule a number of different lobbying events during the week, there will likely be one or two that work for you!
