The tragic murder of Dr. George Tiller is an important reminder that abortion providers and women seeking reproductive health care need on-the-ground support from the pro-choice community.
Clinics across Maryland are in need of peacekeeping escorts. Join NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland and the Washington Area Clinic Defense Task Force for a free training.
Escorts provide a peaceful and reassuring presence for patients, their companions, and staff outside clinics being harassed by anti-choice protesters. Escorting is an important way to support local abortion providers and the women who need their care.
At the training we will talk about clinic safety concerns and precautionary practices that protect against violence. WACTDF volunteers and clinic staff have not experienced violence at a Maryland clinic in over a decade.
Please join us at one of these two trainings and learn how to become a clinic escort.
