About the Event
On January 22, 2023, 50 years after Roe Vs Wade is passed, we gather in Madison, Wisconsin for the next stage of the fight for abortion rights.
In 2023, we know that have the biggest impact at the state level. We're laying the groundwork for local organizing and DEMANDING action from our state legislators.
In 4 months, WI will elect a new Supreme Court Justice. Right now, the WI Supreme Court has a 4-3 conservative majority. If a pro-choice candidate wins this seat, we could overturn the abortion ban in WI.
The first stage of this fight is the primary on February 21, less than a month after the march. We need all of the help we can get if we are to win human rights for the people of Wisconsin.
The event will transition to a march from the rally site to the Capitol where activists will engage in a speak-out to make their voices heard.
-Rally at the State St. Mall 12:00-12:45 -March to the Capitol Building 1:00-1:45 -Speakout 1:45-4:00
We are ALL born free and equal in dignity and rights. The Supreme Court of the U.S. and the United States Congress have failed in their obligation to protect, respect, and uphold our human rights. The women's wave delivered a blow to anti-freedom politicians in the 2022 midterms, and now we are taking the fight out of D.C. and into every single state in this country.
On January 22, 2023, the anniversary of Roe V Wade, as we mourn the loss of nearly 50 years of constitutional protections, we send another clear message:
The midterms were just the beginning. We are not going gently. We are taking our fight to every state house and every state legislator in this country. We are putting all politicians at every level of government on notice: If you come for our families, our freedoms, or our future, we are coming for your seat. Our movement is strong. Our movement is growing.
Our movement is Bigger than Roe.
