On Friday, June 24, 2022, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. As of now, states such as Kentucky, Louisiana, South Dakota have immediately banned abortions and other states such as Texas, Tennessee, and Idaho will be banning abortions 30 days after the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe. We cannot wait to act; we must unite to organize and continue to fight for the rights of all people.
As you may know, Sacramento Take Back the Night (SacTBTN) and Women's March Sacramento released a joint statement about Sacramento Take Back the Night creating a community-led movement to end gender-based violence and advocate for the needs of our community. SacTBTN will facilitate a community-led planning process that will determine the next steps for the Women’s March advocacy project and platform in Sacramento. We are reaching out to you and your organization because now is the time to start to create a community-led coalition of organizations dedicated to ending violence and oppression.
We are fighting against abortion bans, over 300 anti-LGBTQ+ proposed bills, and other racist, sexist, and bigoted legislation that directly harms the wellbeing of the people we represent and serve. Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and other people of color as well as LGBTQ+ communities, young people, people with low incomes, immigrants, and people with disabilities will all be impacted at disproportionate rates and we must take action now!
SacTBTN will be hosting a coalition meeting and we ask that you have at least one representative from your organization and please be sure to register.
