Women’s March – Defend Women’s Reproductive Rights, Sat, Oct 2
October 2, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
On October 2, concerned citizens will be marching in every single state ahead of the Supreme Court reconvening on October 4. Women’s March and more than 90 other organizations, including National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice, Planned Parenthood, SHERO Mississippi, Mississippi in Action, Access Reproductive Care-Southeast, The Frontline, Working Families Party, and SisterSong, are organizing a national call to mobilize and defend our reproductive rights.
Abortion has never been fully accessible, but women are at the risk of losing our reproductive freedom completely. The call to action is clear, and urgent. The relentless attacks from Texas to Mississippi are ramping up quickly. Anti-choice extremists have a deep desire to return to a time when there was more clear and effective domination and control over queer and trans folks, women, and people of color; they want to revive those old values and societal norms to the point of re-acceptance. The authoritarian agenda of reproductive control is fueled by misogyny and racism – and we must challenge it, together.
On October 2, tens of thousands of women and men will be going to Washington to send the Supreme Court and lawmakers across the country a clear, unified message. The attack on women’s reproductive rights will not be tolerated. In addition, local marches will be held throughout the country. In our area, Women March Forward will be leading a march and rally in West Chester beginning at 11AM. Please RVSP here to attend the march and receive additional information. The march will meet at the:
The Historic Chester County Courthouse Steps
