tracking.php?code=eJPGFgCIyJlHL4VtDCHbpx

For our third ACTIVISM event, representatives from Personal PAC will be discussing the state of abortion access in Illinois and around the country and what you can do to get involved to protect access to abortion care. They’ll specifically talk about their efforts to pass HB 40, which would remove the current anti-choice language in the Illinois Criminal Code that states that “life” begins at conception the day Roe v. Wade is overturned, outlawing abortion, the IUD, the pill, and most other commonly used birth control methods. This event will feature Terry Cosgrove and Andi Friedman.

Terry Cosgrove is the president and CEO of Personal PAC. He, along with the board of directors, has been instrumental in developing Personal PAC’s sophisticated strategy for electing pro-choice candidates. Over the past twenty-seven years, Terry has also managed many political campaigns and assisted NARAL, Planned Parenthood, NOW, National Pro-Choice Resource Center, Voters for Choice, Women’s Campaign Fund, and the Emergency Abortion Loan Fund. He served as a commissioner to the Illinois Human Rights Commission and is an inductee in the Chicago LGBTQ Hall of Fame.

Andi Friedman is founder and president of AF Advocacy, a consulting firm that helps progressive organizations effectively advocate for policy change. She is a lawyer and advocate with extensive ties in the women’s rights and progressive communities. Her current work is focused on advancing abortion rights in the U.S. Andi previously served as director of reproductive health and senior policy advisor for reproductive health at the National Partnership for Women & Families. She has also worked internationally as a human rights lawyer as vice president and co-founder of the Global Justice Center, leading trainings around the globe on women’s rights and international law. She began her career in women’s rights as one of the first staff of the Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government where she promoted research and programming on women and policy and helped launch the Women Waging Peace Network.
