On May Day, join the contingent to Defend Roe and Extend Abortion Rights & Access in the May Day March for Labor & Immigrant Rights!

The right to choose abortion is hanging by a thread.

This spring the Supreme Court threatens to further gut or possibly overturn the Roe v. Wade court decision legalizing abortion.

At a time when mass movements in Latin America and elsewhere have forged international solidarity and won greater freedom for women and gender-nonconforming people to control their own bodies, the U.S. threatens to do the opposite—force women to carry unwanted pregnancies to term or seek illegal and dangerous abortions.

If we lose the right to safe and legal abortions, the enemies of women won’t stop there. The same forces opposing abortion oppose birth control and support for families with children; they attack LGBTQ rights, unions, and #BlackLivesMatter while approving vicious treatment of immigrants and refugees.

They must not win!

So please join us on Sunday, May 1st! Cosponsored by Chicago for Abortion Rights, the CDSA SocFems, Chicago Feminist Action, Chicago NOW, Chicago Socialist Alternative, Clinic Vest Project, Gay Liberation Network, Illinois Choice Action Team, Refuse Fascism-Chicago

Assemble: 10 am, Union Park, corner of Randolph St & Ashland Ave,
