“Not the Church, Not the State” March and Rally

October 3, 2021 @ 2:00 pm PDT

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!


  • Protect & expand Roe v. Wade; safe, legal abortion on demand without apology
  • Repeal the Hyde Amendment
  • Overturn state barriers to reproductive choices
  • Stop forced sterilization
  • No to caged kids, forced assimilation, & child welfare abuses
  • End medical & environmental racism; for universal healthcare
  • Defend queer & trans families
  • Guarantee medically sound sex education & affordable childcare
  • Uphold social progress with expanded voting rights & strong unions

Meet at St. James Catholic Cathedral, 804 9th Avenue
March to Federal Courthouse, 700 Stewart Street
