Furious about the threat to our abortion rights?
Join the Mad as Hell Raging Grannies* & Handmaids on Mother's Day as they troop through the Bay Area Book Festival with vivid reminders of what a pre-Roe America looked like.
You can express your own anger by JOINING THE PROCESSION! Costumes available for participants including bloody white pants and Handmaid cloaks, or join in our march as your regular self.
Tell the world:
--Books not Back Alley Abortions
--We Won't Go Back
--Abortion on Demand and Without Apology
--The Handmaid's Tale is a novel, a warning--not the future
Meet at the corner of Allston Way and MLK in Berkeley at 1:45 pm on Mother's Day May 8.
