Thu Jan 19 2012 (Updated 01/20/12)
Pro-Choice Activists to Counter "Walk for Life" with Family-Friendly Event
Women's rights advocates will celebrate the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade in San Francisco's Justice Herman Plaza on the same day that the annual "Walk for Life" calls for its repeal in other parts of the city. On Saturday, January 21st, the Rally for Reproductive Justice will feature music, children's entertainment and speakers from 11 am to 1pm. All activities will take place under large tents so attendees can enjoy the event shielded from forecasted rain showers.

Speakers will include Senator Mark Leno, San Francisco Supervisor David Chiu, Change.org's Women's Rights Director Alex DiBranco, Dr. Sophia Yen of the Silver Ribbon Campaign and Patty Belasalma, President of California NOW.

Tabling organizations will be on hand including ISIS (Internet Sexuality Information Services), World Can't Wait, Bay Area Coalition for our Reproductive Rights, SF NOW, and Religious Communities for Reproductive Justice, amongst others. Local artists the Raging Grannies and Ziva Hadar will perform on stage while balloon twisters and face-painters round out the program for this all ages event.
