Saturday, October 2nd we gather on the Great Steps of Grace Cathedral at 10 AM for a prayer before walking together to the march of solidarity with the SF Women’s March.
We stand together and we march together. Showing our presence in numbers too great to ignore. I marched in Washington DC in 2017 along with my friends from California. Showing our presence in numbers, being “there” was very important to us. There was no agenda, just an overwhelming desire to be present. We marched in peace and simply wanted to be heard.
This Saturday, October 2, we march for our rights for reproductive justice. This march is about reproductive freedom. It’s more than just the “A” word. This is about quality reproductive healthcare services for all. I don’t want a state mandating what I can or can’t have access to.
“We believe in Reproductive Freedom. We do not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on our ability to access quality reproductive healthcare services, birth control, HIV/AIDS care and prevention, or medically accurate sexuality education. This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education.” Unity Principle, The Women’s March.”Women’s March Organization
If you are in the SF Bay Area, I hope you will meet us at the Great Steps of Grace Cathedral where we will say a prayer and march down from Nob Hill to join others at Grove and Hyde Street. If you are not local, here is a current map of all the cities hosting a women’s march on October 2:
