Fifty years ago, we stood on the Supreme Court stairs and demanded our right to abortion be protected under the Constitution of the United States. However, today, we stand in an unprecedented time where we must rally again to fight for the basic right to bodily autonomy.
It’s time to mobilize and we know NOW activists are ready. The leaked draft of Justice Alito’s opinion overturning Roe v. Wade is the worst-case scenario and we are ready to fight back. This misogynistic opinion relegates women to second-class citizens- we cannot go back!
If the Roe does fall, half of the states will likely ban abortion altogether, resulting in a large swath of the south and mid-west without access to care – affecting 40 million persons of reproductive age. Many of them women of color; many of them living in marginalized communities
The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act aims to remove those barriers by protecting all employees’ basic right to join a union and engage in collective bargaining for better pay, benefits, and working conditions.
If Judge Jackson is confirmed, she will be the first Black woman to ever serve as a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court in its 233-year history.
