law makers who are working to improve women's access to health care. In an
effort to engage lawmakers and give voice to supporters, our sister affiliate

rundown on current legislative issues, a T-shirt and lunch. Those interested
must RSVP ahead of time.

Oklahoma City, OK
Over the years we have seen a stigma form over women’s health issues, and it
has not done well for our state. Oklahoma is the only state in the U.S. that
saw life expectancy for women decline in the two decades and our state is
consistently ranked among the bottom 10 states for health outcomes. Despite
these poor indicators Oklahoma still has over 100,000 uninsured citizens. So
please come out and stand up for women's health!
In the meantime help us gain support for this worthy cause by tweeting or
posting #accessforus via social media to highlight the lack of access many
Oklahoma women face in seeking quality, affordable health care. Together we can
highlight the importance of women’s health in Oklahoma and show our lawmakers
that we won’t stand for inaction or political grandstanding while women’s lives
are on the line!
Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you at the Capitol on
