Across the United States this year, eight states, including Alabama and Missouri, have passed bans or bills restricting abortion.
On Tuesday, May 21, 2019, citizens across the United States are gathering in front of statehouses, town squares, and courthouses to protest this latest wave of legislation. Women’s March Rome will be standing in solidarity with their #StopTheBans allies across the ocean by holding a protest in front of the U.S. Embassy Rome at 12-2 p.m.
#StopTheBans is being led by numerous advocacy groups including the ACLU, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and Women’s March.

One year later, Americans and Italians in Rome come together to stand up for progress and equality.
On 20 January 2018, Americans and Italians in Rome will gather from 11:00 to 13:00 in Piazza Santi Apostoli to stand together in solidarity for the promotion and protection of civil and social rights, women's rights, and the environment. We will also decry the rise of nationalistic populism in the West and the present US Administration’s attacks on democratic institutions, and its politics of division and untruths. Equally important, we will voice our support of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and assault, and pledge to take our power to the voting booth this year (#PowerToThePolls).
The Women’s March Rome Anniversary, organized by individual American citizens in Italy, will take place during the #WeekendOfWomen. Hundreds of marches and rallies are being organized worldwide on 20 and 21 January as a grassroots reaction to the Trump Administration and its damaging policies to working class citizens, women, minority groups, immigrants, the military, the sick, the poor and the planet. They include the decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Agreement, tax breaks that disproportionately favor corporations and wealthy class, and a belligerent and isolationist approach to international relations.
Several organizations of Americans in Italy will participate in the event, joined by Italian and international groups, to honor the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice in the spirit of democracy. At the time of this press release, the following organizations have announced their participation:
We are actively seeking the support of Italian organizations whose mission and goals intersect with ours.
Speakers and music groups will soon be announced.
