BIG Rally to Defend Reproductive Rights!
May 14 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=27094
A majority of the Supreme Court recently made clear they plan to overturn Roe v Wade, which will allow most states in the country to ban the right to choose an abortion. Planned Parenthood and its allies have called a National Day of Action to protest this Saturday, May 14th. It is expected to be LARGE. You don’t want to miss this. Invite your friends!
However, Planned Parenthood’s solution is often just “vote for Democrats,” which has proven insufficient for stopping this threat to our rights. The Democrats currently control the White House, House, and Senate, and yet they have failed to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would codify Roe v Wade into law. Nor have they expanded the Supreme Court to put a progressive majority on the court. These are just some of the many reasons why we need to build the socialist working-class wing of the feminist movement and attract more people to join DSA.
-Sign up HERE to be part of the Socialist Feminist Contingent this SATURDAY May 14th 11am at Cal Anderson Park. Come early to help us assemble picket signs and set up our literature table. Find us by looking for the big yellow DSA socialist feminist banner (see yellow image above)! We will also post our tabling location on the Slack bulletin board Saturday morning. We also could use help collecting signatures for the social housing ballot initiative, Stephanie Gallardo’s campaign, and Whole WA healthcare for all campaign!
And put Saturday May 21st at 5pm on your calendar for a follow-up Socialist Feminist DSA meeting to talk about next steps.
