The Pro-Voice Project will present The Abortion Diaries, a stage production of McCall-area residents’ personal stories of reproductive agency. The performance will bring the subject of abortion out of the realm of shadow and illuminate the myriad ways in which this decision touches people’s lives. It will also address the fallout from Idaho’s restrictive and punitive abortion laws and provide context for the history and future of the fight for reproductive justice.

The stage production will be followed by a Q&A with community leaders, medical care providers, and activists. Click here for info and tickets.

Public Meeting of the Valley County Democratic Party Central Committee

Tuesday, February 20— 7 pm
Bill Thomas and Jacki Rubin’s Home
650 Brady Drive, McCall

it is time for Democrats and all non-MAGA Republicans to get involved. With all the crazy and mean-spirited actions from our state MAGA legislature, the lack of action by the county on affordable housing for our local workers and our Putin-loving Republican Congressional delegation, our Democracy is in danger. 

We will be discussing our upcoming events and activities for the Spring, Summer and Fall. Activities will include: The Presidential Caucus, recruitment of candidates for county and state legislature, and County-wide campaign to elect Democrats up and down the ballot. Come to the meeting and identify ways you can lend a hand to move our county and state forward.
