Town Halls Around NC – #SaveRoe and #SaveSCOTUS – August 2018

The threat to overturn the historic Roe v Wade decision, as well as threat to women’s basic health care in general, has increased since the election of 45, the nominations of both Neil Gorsuch (now seated on SCOTUS, Supreme Court Of The United States) and Brett Kavanaugh. We must stand firm and fight for the preservation of reproductive rights and the sanctity of #SCOTUS.  Make plans to attend any town hall meetings near you to show your support for Roe and SCOTUS. These town halls are hosted by Progress North Carolina, NC NOW, Naral Pro-choice North Carolina, Equality NC, Action NC and more organizations.
