WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: DNC and Local Dems Hold Defend Choice Week of Action

Over the last week, Democrats across the country held a Defend Choice Week of Action to mobilize supporters and engage voters around Republicans’ extreme anti-choice agenda via DefendChoice.org. 

Last Tuesday, the DNC kicked off the Week of Action with digital ads hitting the GOP’s plans to push for more abortion restrictions, and followed that up with a six-figure TV ad campaign in battleground states calling Republicans out for their calls to ban abortion in every state across the country:

And throughout the week, state parties across the country held events blasting local Republicans for their efforts to roll back Americans’ freedom to make their own health care decisions:

In addition to these pushes to hold Republicans accountable for their ultra-MAGA anti-choice agenda, states across the country rallied and organized to elect Democrats up and down the ticket to protect Americans’ right to choose. Here are just a few examples:

  • In Connecticut: Governor Ned Lamont joined volunteers to knock doors for Democrats in Connecticut. 
  • In New Hampshire: Democrats held virtual phone banks to encourage voters to elect Democrats up and down the ballot. 
  • In Nevada: Democrats held several organizing events, including strategy sessions with organizers, to help elect Senator Cortez Masto, Governor Sisolak, and all Democrats up and down the ballot to defend choice. 
  • In New York: Volunteers phone banked for congressional candidate Max Rose. 
  • In Virginia: Team Rep. Jennifer Wexton held phone banks and canvasses to help reelect pro-choice Democrats to Congress.
