BANS OFF OUR BODIES Online Event Follow up



Thanks to everyone who attended our event. Here are the links to most of the things we talked about today, plus some extra information. Read Global Women's Caucus Statement on the Right to an Abortion.


  • Contact your senator and tell them you want them to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act. It has already passed the house, and it is waiting for the Senate to enshrine the right to abortion without unnecessary restrictions into federal law
  • Donate to abortion funds working on the front lines every day to ensure people who need abortions can access them no matter what
  • Donate to Democrats Abroad
  • Organize your families, friends, neighbors, coworkers, classmates - anyone you can. Remind them that this is about more than abortion and that we need all of our allies to get involved, vote, and demand our elected officials enact the policies we elected them to
  • Share your story. If you need support, help, or inspiration, check out:
