LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! STAND WITH WOMEN THIS WEEKEND IN D.C. AND ANNAPOLIS!

More then ever women’s rights are under attack! Instead of focusing on the economy and job growth, anti-choice politicians across the country have launched a barrage of attacks on women. At the state and federal level, there has been a no-holds-bar attack on family planning services, health care screenings, programs for low income women & infants, and abortion care.
Grassroots protests have sprung up across the nation in response to these threats. If you care about women, their families, and reproductive freedom, it’s time to get involved!

Although, we are not directly affiliated with these activities, these events are a great opportunity to show you stand with women, Planned Parenthood and with choice!

The Walk for Choice is an organic series of events planned for Saturday February 26, being organized via tumblr and facebook. Local walks are happening in Annapolis and D.C. from 12-3pm. Exact route details to be released Friday morning.

If you prefer a rally, The Rally for Choice is also being held this Saturday from 12-3pm in Dupont Circle, Washington D.C. Organizers from both events are collaborating to ensure the events are cohesive and enhance The event is being sponsored by the Young Women’s Project and ISO (DC branch).

Don’t stand idly by while anti-choice politicians attack reproductive rights. Grab your pro-choice buttons, get creative with your sign, and join these events in Annapolis & D.C. to show your support reproductive rights!
