Abortion Rights Freedom Ride

A few weeks ago I posted a number of concrete things you can do right away to support abortion rights. Here's another.

The group Stop Patriarchy is currently engaged in an Abortion Rights Freedom Ride across the country, focusing on states where abortion rights are particularly precarious, hanging often on one lone provider. Rather than focusing on legislation, their important direct action activism is aimed directly at supporting and defending the people who make abortion even possible in these states, and whose lives are quite literally on the line.

Major events are planned for the following:
August 3: Fargo, North Dakota
August 10: Wichita, Kansas
August 17: Jackson, Mississippi

If you live in the area, or have friends and family there, please spread the word and help build popular support for abortion providers and abortion rights where they are most under attack.

Visit the Abortion Rights Freedom Ride website for the most up-to-date information on the ride and reports from stops along the way.
