For revolutionary feminism,
racial justice, and working-class power.
Are you outraged about the Texas abortion ban going into effect? You can take action to commemorate Rosie Jiménez and build the fight for reproductive justice! This local action is part of the call to “Remember Rosie Jiménez: National Mobilization for Reproductive Justice” that Radical Women has been working on with other activists around the United States.
Jiménez was a Latinx college student who died on October 3, 1977 after she couldn’t pay for a legal abortion and had no choice but to seek out a cheaper, unsafe option. She is considered to be the first person to die after the Hyde Amendment made it illegal for Medicaid to pay for abortions.
This action also connects to a Supreme Court hearing this fall on a Mississippi case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that could overturn Roe vs. Wade. Let’s work together to demonstrate public support for Roe v. Wade and pressure the U.S. Supreme Court. It took a movement to win abortion and it will take a movement to keep it!
Meet at St. James Catholic Cathedral, 804 9th Avenue
March to Federal Courthouse, 700 Stewart Street
Organizing meetings for Seattle’s action will be every Tuesday at 6:30pm on Zoom.
Next meeting on September 26
