There’s no easy way to say this, abortion access is at risk nationally. We ask that you stand with Planned Parenthood Pasadena & San Gabriel Valley (PPPSGV) and our local partner organizations in sounding the alarm and raising visibility of this crucial time.
What: Caravan for Choice, in partnership with the Women’s March National call to mobilize and defend reproductive rights. Join the caravan in your car, bike, or motorcycle and parade through Pasadena to draw attention to this important issue.
When: On Saturday, October 2nd at 9:30 a.m.
Who: Join SMART, NAACP, YWCA, POP, NWPC-Pasadena and SGV chapters, ACLU-Pasadena chapter, Plan C, Black Women for Wellness, Indivisible, Swing Left SGV, Active SGV, SGV LGBTQ Center, Rooted in Resistance, Peace over Violence, Glendora HS Women's Wellness, Day One, All Saints Church, and Planned Parenthood Pasadena & San Gabriel Valley.
I’ve seen abortion access being slowly stripped away in Texas for years. I’ve heard stories of people driving hundreds of miles to get the health care services they need. And earlier this month we saw S.B. 8, a vicious Texas law that nearly restricts all abortion access, go into effect. We’re at a crucial moment in the movement for reproductive rights, and for ensuring abortion is safe and accessible for everyone.
My overwhelming sadness and feelings of futility have fueled me these last few weeks, and it feels good to spring into action. Please join me in taking action and joining the national movement to protect abortion access and reproductive rights.
Thank you for your support,
