Bans Off Our Bodies GOTV event at Condeco Saturday 14 May

In response to the recent leak of a draft Supreme Court decision overriding Roe v. Wade threatening not only the right to abortion but the right to privacy more broadly, Democrats Abroad – Western Sweden organized a get-out-the-vote meetup at Condeco-Fredsgatan in downtown Göteborg Saturday afternoon 14 May. New volunteer Nan Albertson inspired the meetup and created a wonderfully big sign (see below) as well as small pins that she gave out freely, especially to children waiting in line with their families for the toilets (since, conveniently, we were located near the toilet queue in Condeco’s wonderful upstairs “living room”).

Steering committee members Diane, Cheryl, and Rick had a great time meeting Nan and a few Americans who wandered by, sitting down long enough to get help requesting their ballots.

The location seems perfect for such events so we expect to have many more there.
