RALLY with NOW in DC on Thursday:
Join NOW to rally in support of Dr. Blasey Ford, beginning at 8 AM, on Thursday, September 27th, at the Supreme Court (1 First Street, NE, Washington, DC 20543). We will be wearing TEAL and holding Dear Professor Ford signs. We will have materials to make a sign if you don’t bring one. At 8:30 AM, we will march. We will continue marching until around 9:15 AM, at which time we will enter the Senate Office Buildings to view the hearing. Please sign up here to receive logistical information on the Thursday action. If you need local housing on Wednesday and/or Thursday nights, please sign up here. For questions, please contact NOW.
WEAR TEAL to support Dr. Blasey Ford. Anita Hill wore TEAL when she testified in 1991. Summon the courage and strength of Anita Hill when you support Dr. Blasey Ford this week. WEAR TEAL and post your photos on social media tagging @NationalNOW with the hashtag #BelieveSurvivorsNOW. If you stage a local walkout or protest, invite local media outlets to cover your event.
