Our Favorite Moments from the #ActNoMatterWhat TweetChat!

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

Last Wednesday, we collaborated with Planned Parenthood Generation Action (the youth organizing arm of Planned Parenthood Action Fund), and took over Twitter for the #ActNoMatterWhat TweetChat. I was honored to be the moderator for this important conversation. We relied on our readers and Planned Parenthood supporters to talk about the issues that really matter in the face of legislative and personal attacks reproductive health care and an upcoming election. It’s safe to say that people are fired up and ready to show up, show out, and elect someone who is #InOurCorner on not only reproductive and sexual health, but a host of other issues like police violence, labor equity, and immigration reform.

This online event was a great example of what happens when many voices come together in solidarity: an honest, intersectional conversation about the intersections of reproductive and sexual health. Allies like Advocates for Youth, Echoing Ida, URGE, Ms. Foundation, and the National Abortion Fund participated, adding layers of nuance. If you weren’t able to tune in to the TweetChat, you can still let Planned Parenthood Action Fund know what you think they should #ActNoMatterWhat on.

In the meantime, check out some of our favorite moments below.
