TUESDAY: Democratic Candidates for Governor to Answer Questions on Reproductive Freedom
Candidates Appearing at NARAL’s Forum for Choice

NARAL’s 2018 Forum for Choice is being held to question each candidate for California Governor on a series of issues important to reproductive freedom. The NARAL Pro-Choice California event will be hosted by respected journalist Wendy Tokuda, who will moderate a panel of journalists and women’s rights advocates asking questions of the candidates. Anyone who gets elected as governor is going to have an enormous impact on how reproductive rights and reproductive health are implemented in the state, whether it’s through their budget decisions, power of appointment, or health insurance reform.

WHO: Candidates for governor who have committed to take part in the forum are John Chiang, Delaine Eastin, Gavin Newsom, and Antonio Villaraigosa.
