On October 4th the Supreme Court of the United States will be reconvening and one of the cases on their docket is a 15 week abortion ban currently being litigated from Mississippi. This, along with the six weeks abortion ban in Texas and our own fights in Florida, compel us as Central Floridians to come together and mobilize to protect abortion access for all.
We’ll be gathering at Orlando City Hall at 11am on October 2nd to rally for reproductive freedom and to push local lawmakers to ACT and protect our rights. We’ll also be focused on voter registration and hear from phenomenal speakers including local advocates, providers and abortion story tellers. A short speaking program will take place from 11:20am-12pm with march set to begin at 12:00pm.
