Action 1: March for Abortion Rights on January 14

Each January, right-wing, anti-choice folks from around the midwest are bussed into Chicago for the "March for Life."

There is nothing "pro-life" about their positions -- they don't support contraception and comprehensive sexual education to prevent abortions, and they don’t support subsidized healthcare for babies once they're born. They don't care that black women are drastically more likely to die in childbirth than white women. They're perfectly happy to see funding cut for programs that serve disabled infants, children, and adults. For these reasons and more, we need to stand against this call to restrict a woman’s right to choose and in favor of comprehensive sex ed and healthcare for all people.

Join Students for Reproductive Justice and others for a March for Abortion Rights to show them that Chicago is pro-choice.

When: Sunday, January 14 from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
Where: Across the street from Federal Plaza in front of the Dirksen Federal Building
What: A rally and speak-out, followed by a short march through the streets of downtown Chicago and a rally at the end of the route.
Bring: signs and banners and wear your Handmaid outfit if you have one (but be prepared for cold weather). Be prepared to be LOUD!
