The following was sent by Californa Latinas for Reproductive Justice on November 30.

 According to their website, this group counts as Reproductive Justice victories the defeat of three California parental notification ballot initiatives.

After November’s federal and state elections, we know that we will be continuing with the implementation of health reform and California has taken a major step toward raising the revenues needed to alleviate its fiscal crisis. To discuss the full impact of the election’s results, join us for our fall convening series, Equity and the Election: Looking at the Future of Health in CaliforniaSpeakers, including the California Budget Project and local advocates, will share insights on the future of health reform and the state budget.

The convening will provide participants with:

  • The status of health care reform implementation in light of the federal election
  • How ballot initiative results will impact the state budget and health and social services programs

Opportunities to take action and mobilize on federal and state efforts to advance healthy equity
