Stop the Bans - Rally with Cecile Richards

Tue, May 21, 2019 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm


* UPDATE - Former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards will be joining us to open the rally at 5:30 PM! *

In Michigan and across the country, we are seeing a new wave of extreme bans on abortion, stripping away reproductive freedom and representing an all-out assault on abortion access.

This is Trump’s anti-choice movement, and it’s terrifying, particularly for women of color, trans and GNC folks, and low-income patients who are most affected by these bans.

Join us in Ann Arbor to rally for reproductive freedoms in the Diag! Bring your signs and your Planned Parenthood spirit!

We will show up to speak out and fight back against this unconstitutional attempt to gut Roe and criminalize health care. Politicians don’t belong anywhere near the exam room, and they shouldn't be making decisions best left to pregnant people, their families, and their doctors.

Together we say: Stop the bans.


The Diag is sidewalk accessible.

We have confirmed that we will have a certified ASL interpreter at the event, and we will have an ADA accessible seating area at the front of the rally. We are working on making sure volunteers will keep this area clear.

If you have any further requests, please email Hoai An Pham at

5:30PM - 6:30PM Speakers!

We have some amazing speakers lined up, and are working on finalizing this list.

What to bring/wear:

1. Please dress appropriately for the weather. It is looking to be in the low 60s/high 50s, so layers would be advised!

2. Make sure to bring water, and any *nut free* snacks you might want.

3. Signs if you would like, that are regular poster size!

Kids are welcome!
