A Handmaid's Tale: Abortion Ban Protest (2pm-5pm)

Date: 
Sat, Jun 22, 2019 - 2:00pm to 5:00pm

City:

Sponsored by Michigan National Organization for Women
Planned Parenthood Lansing
*** We ask that attendees remain silent for the beginning of the event, it will change once we get started.
Please also note that there may be counter-protesters at the event. We ask that this remains a peaceful protest. There will be security to handle any issues that come up***
We need to show solidarity for those already affected by these new abortion law bans. We need to show we do not support these changes that put the health and safety of women and trans/nonbinary people at risk. So on June 22nd 2019 starting at 2pm and ending at 5pm I say we gather together in protest.
We need to keep it peaceful, but I want us to make an impact. We should all dress in the red robes and white bonnets and gather outside our state Capitol building. Bring informative pamphlets and signs, but we need to remain silent as we do so for the representation of our rights being stripped away.
If anyone wishes to help host or speak at this please message me so we can make arrangements.
Please share this and spread awareness!

In order to get a permit we are also fundraising, any excess money will go to supplies and donated to planned parenthood:
