YWCA Southern Arizona – Drive-Up Petition Signing

July 2 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am

Join us at the YWCA Southern Arizona Main Campus to sign the Reproductive Freedom, Justice for All, and Healthcare Rising petitions! Drive up to our front door and we will bring them to you – you don’t even have to get out of your car! If we get enough signatures for these initiatives to make it on the ballot, here’s what each one will do:
1. Arizona Right to Reproductive Freedom Initiative:
Would add an amendment to the Arizona state constitution recognizing the right of each person to make their own decisions about all matters related to pregnancy, including contraception, abortion, prenatal care, childbirth, and sterilization.
2. Justice for All:
Would give all Pima County residents facing detention or deportation proceedings access to a public defender. The initiative would establish the Office of Immigration Representation (to be funded by sliding scale fees and public and private funding).
3. Healthcare Rising:
In Arizona, interest rates of medical debt can increase by as much as 10% per year, every year. The Predatory Debt Collection Protection Act protects assets like homes and cars from being sold to pay off debt collectors, and limits the outrageous interest rates that trap families in an unending cycle of medical debt.
