A nonfiction writing worksop focused on personal stories of abortion and reproductive justice. Through writing prompts, discussion, deep listening and trust-building, partcipants will be invited to bring the experience of abortion- both deeply private and commonplace-out of the shadows, allowing for catharsis and deeper understanding. No writing experience is required!
Stories can also be submitted to Pro Voice Project, P.O. Box 1782, McCall Idaho 83638
In the Spring of 2024, an evening of performance and discussion is being planned at the Alpine Playhouse. With permission, stories that are gathered at the workshop may be used as material in the creation of the performance. Story-sharers will remain anonymous.

On Wednesday, August 9th over 50 people gathered to hear from Democratic leaders and candidates, listen to good music, enjoy great food from K&B’s, and raise money for candidates and the county and state Democratic organizations!
Steve Berch, District 15 State Representative, spoke about the need to elect Democrats to the legislature to end the Republican supermajority and their extreme agenda. Jared Dawson spoke about his candidacy for District 8 seat A, which includes Valley County. He will promote common sense legislation reflecting democratic values. Kaylee Peterson hopes to replace our current congressman who wants to end Obamacare, throwing thousands of Idahoans off health insurance. He also wants to take away women’s control of their health with a national total ban on abortion.

Valley County Dems gathered en masse Sunday evening to be inspired. Jared DeLoof, Executive Director of the Idaho Democratic Party, laid out IDP’s plan to get candidates into every legislative race across the State. Democrat legislators “punched well above their weight” this past session to beat back some of the worst GOP bills, but we must fill more seats with Democrats.
Jared is seeing larger turnouts at IDP events throughout Idaho in response to the extremism of Republican lawmakers. Eighty people attended Tacos and Politics at Pueblo Lindo Restaurant in McCall on April 16. Let’s keep up the momentum!
