A Week in Review, January 27, 2017
JAC members participated in the Women's March in many cities around the country. We marched in Washington, DC, Florida, New York, Boston, Denver, Chicago, San Diego, Los Angeles, where we lent our voices to those standing up for reproductive rights, immigration, equality, and climate science. The energy and passion was overwhelming.
But the euphoria quickly faded when President Donald Trump, on his first Monday as President, signed an anti-abortion executive order. The week became worse with a steady flow of Congressional bills aimed at reducing and eliminating women's access to abortion care and family planning. He is working with the GOP to prevent women from receiving safe and legal reproductive health care in the U.S. and around the world. The war on women is real and Trump won't stop until he has successfully overturned Roe v Wade.
Now is not the time to be discouraged - we cannot give up! Now is the time to come together. Join JAC as we channel our energy, rage, and hope to make a difference. Commit to following through on Action Alerts, join us for days of Action, come with us to Washington, DC in May to take our message to the halls of Congress. NOW is the time to act. Together we have the power to make our voices heard and defend and protect our rights!
