Standing in Solidarity with the Women of Texas!South Steps of the Texas State Capitol
Monday, 1 Jul 2013, 12:00 PM
Attention all of us who stood with Senator Wendy Davis! Were preparing for the next stage of our fight. Governor Perry and his party have called another session and we know his agenda. He thinks that Texas women and their families in small towns and rural communities will take this bill that denies women necessary health services laying down. As our State government it is his/their responsibility to provide safe and legal pregnancy termination services and access to contraception at an identical level across the State. Add to that the illegal tactics they have used over and over again to pass this bill and we have every right to hold them accountable. We will continue that process with a rally in coordination with NARAL and other womens groups at Noon on Monday, July 1.
Message from host: MoveOn is coordinating with NARAL and other local and national groups to support a grassroots event - Kill the Bill. This rally will kick off a sustained campaign over the next 30 days to make it very difficult if not impossible to pass this bill. Come dressed in orange. MoveOn will provide signs. Meet us at the West side of the Capitol steps at 11:45 am to get your signs and to sign in. Watch for updates here please.
open for RSVP, 750 attendees (max. 5000)
