Take pictures and sign banners with your statement of support for abortion rights to send to clinics in Fargo, ND, Wichita, KS, and Jackson, MS - then hear dynamic speakers speak unapologetically about abortion, including teenagers who are joining us on the ride speaking passionately to why they are going.

After send-off rallies on July 23 in NYC and SF, caravans will travel from both coasts, rallying and gathering support along the way, arriving in North Dakota before August 1 when new laws are set to shut down the last abortion clinic in the state. Then, down to Wichita where those who courageously re-opened the clinic of Dr. George Tiller following his assassination by an anti-abortion gunman are facing serious, and escalating threat. On to Jackson, Mississippi where a temporary court injunction is the only thing keeping the last remaining clinic in the state open. All along the way, we’ll protest and confront the anti-abortion woman-haters, erect visual displays that tell the truth about abortion and birth control, collect and amplify women’s abortion stories in order to break the silence, defend the clinics and providers most under attack, and meet with people to build lasting organization to DEFEAT the whole war on women.
