Planned Parenthood Head to Give Update on Roe


We know that abortion rights are under attack nationally.


But what is the situation in Michigan? Where are we in the battle to protect abortion rights in Michigan and what might the future hold? And what are the best forecasts for what the U.S. Supreme Court will do?


Come to Livingston County Democrats’ Jan. 27 executive committee meeting to get an update on where we stand from Nicole Wells Stallworth, executive director of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan.


Ms. Stallworth has made it her mission to facilitate access to an equitable quality of life for the underrepresented and underserved for the better part of her career which spans over more than two decades. She has been a champion for equity in education, women in politics, and anti-racism.


Ms. Stallworth is a Michigan Political Leadership Program Alumni Fellow and a member of Leadership Detroit class 37.


Also joining Livingston Dems will be Tyler Barron, a member of the policy team at the Environmental Law and Policy Center. ELPC is working to have four areas in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula designated as federal Wilderness areas.


Three of the areas are new -- the Ehlco area; the Trap Hills, and Norwich Plains. Together, they would create a nearly contiguous National Wilderness area of almost 50,000 acres. This would be connected with the Pocupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.


The fourth area, the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness Addition, would add nearly 2,000 acres of unique pristine land to the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness, creating a total contiguous Wilderness area of almost 17,000 acres.


Barron is seeking the party’s support of the designations.


The party’s regular business meeting will follow.
