Take to the Streets and Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights In A Week of Resistance May 8 – 14

On campuses, in workplaces, on social media, in the arts and the sciences, out in the streets, everywhere…Raise your voice and raise hell! Silence is your stamp of approval. Show which side you are on. Wear & spread the Green Bandana – the international symbol of abortion rights. Take nonviolent creative action.

In the Bay Area the week culminates in a unified day of protest Saturday May 14. see https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2022/05/03/18849439.php for that event.

*The Raging Grannies have demonstrated for the preservation and expansion of Roe every year since 2004. They lived the experience of a pre-Roe America. Follow them on instagram @raging_grannies for up to date announcements of Bay Area protests for abortion rights and more.
