Why I'm Marching on Aug. 26
Women and their allies will take to the street on Sunday, Aug. 26 in cities across the country to stand up against the right-wing war on women's rights. In San Francisco, we will be gathering at 24th and Mission Streets at 12 noon for a march and rally.
As Republicans and Democrats prepare for their conventions in Tampa and Charlotte, we will celebrate Women’s Equality Day by sending a clear message: Women will not stand by while our rights are under attack.
Access to healthcare – including contraception and abortion – childcare, housing, welfare and other benefits are being slashed across the country.
We are tired of politicians playing political football with our lives. It’s time we take action. It’s time we organize and fight back.
