Access to abortion is a family issue! CAF is supporting Kido for a Families for Abortion Access action on 7/4 at 9:30 on 38th/S King Dr.

Join us as we take to the streets on the South Side with our children, parents, and families (chosen families included) to demand freedom, justice, and autonomy for ALL communities.

Building our families should be a process full of love, affirmation, and support – not criminalization! We know the the majority of people who get abortions are parents, and that EVERYONE loves people who have had abortions. Be in community with us this ‘independence day’ to let the world know we ARE NOT FREE, and that we deserve to be in control of our bodies and lives.

All are welcome, including kiddos! Complete list of sponsoring orgs and accessibility information to come.

Abortion & many more rights under threat.

Resistance & Defiance must be our watchwords now. A politically biased court, stacked with ideologues, is trying to get us to buy the myth that they’re “above politics,” and soberly following the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Nothing is further from the truth.

“Justice” Thomas let slip the right wing’s real agenda by saying that LGBTQ rights and access to contraceptives are now on their chopping  block  too.

Today’s Supreme Court’s decision is extremely damaging, but far from the last word on the matter. Awful court decisions have been openly and covertly resisted in the past, eventually changing history.

Join us in the fight for safe, legal abortion, full bodily autonomy & other civil rights.

Chicago Reclaim Pride March

Just as we seemed to be nearing the end of “uncertain times”, due in large to the Covid 19 pandemic, latent threats re-emerged.

Abortion rights, Gun control, Racial Injustice, Police Violence, Trans Rights and protections all are under attack, just to name a few.

It is only through community that we will overcome these threats to our personal safety and happiness.

This year the Drag March For Change has partnered with Pride without Prejudice to join voices in protest.

This year’s march is a call to action that centers black trans voices, serves as a moment of reflection and as way for the community to move forward in solidarity.

So please answer the call and join us at 1pm on June 12, 2022 at the Belmont redline station for the Chicago Reclaim Pride March!

The official Chicago Pride parade still exists as a for profit entity and though it may claim to celebrate the LGBTQIA2+ community it appears to more so celebrate the American dollar. Through BIPOC leadership molding this event, highlighting the current issues under attack of Trans rights, women’s personal autonomy (abortion rights) , gun control, and police violence they aim to help bring an end to these never ending attacks that hinder our personal pursuit of happiness. This direct action paired with productive programming seeks to act as a summit of solidarity for every color of the LGBTQIA2+ rainbow, mirroring ourselves and the world around us to provide a focus for the future.

*Speakers List and March Route will be released.
To volunteer:

List of Demands:

That the Chicago Pride Parade become a non-profit entity equipped with a diverse board that can serve to
guide and protect the true soul of Pride.

That violence against Trans persons becomes classified as hate crime on both a State and Federal level.

That women’s and gender non-conforming people’s right to choose abortion be protected in perpetuity.

That stricter restrictions be immediately implemented for gun control nationally.

That the Chicago City Council defund CPD by 75% and reinvest those funds into social services and community programs.

Justice* for all victims of police violence
*Justice being the abolishment of the system that took these lives and that restorative systems grow in their stead.

Emergency Response to Supreme Court Ruling – TODAY

The date listed here is just a placeholder – we do not know which weekday the Court will issue its ruling. It will most likely be this month. Facebook allows events of 15 days maximum. (This Event will be updated accordingly.) Whichever day the Court rules, we ask that everyone who supports legal abortion gather at Chicago’s Federal Plaza (Adams & Dearborn Streets) for an emergency response to the Court’s ruling.


The politically biased Supreme Court is getting ready to gut the legal right to abortion; while we do not yet know whether they will overrule Roe v. Wade, we do know that any decision they issue in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization will severely curtail abortion rights in a vast swath of the United States.
By threatening legal abortion even in states that have laws protecting it, the court is slamming the door in the face of millions of women and gender non-conforming people, hitting Black, Brown, and Indigenous people the hardest.
It is putting at risk all LGBTQ rights, the right to contraception, and even the right to interracial marriage.
If the court goes through with its threat, this will be the first time in US history that the Court has taken away rights previously guaranteed.
To say that this is a horrible precedent and a huge step backwards for all of us is a gross understatement.
We will NOT silently accept a rightwing attack on abortion that opens the door to attacks on the rights of all women, LGBTQs, Black and Brown people, and all working-class people.
WE MUST RESPOND by taking to the streets. This is the way our rights have always been won. This is the way that they must be defended.
Help tell Washington that we will not silently allow decades of progress to be swept away.
On the day that the Court issues its decision, that night, drop everything and assemble at Chicago’s Federal Plaza (Adams & Dearborn Streets) at 5:30 pm.

4 years ago, we rose up together. 1 million of us demanded change. We built a movement. We voted for new leaders. But our elected leaders grew comfortable, and gun deaths increased.

With the power of a movement comes the responsibility to use it. It’s time to rise up once more and take to the streets. Now is the moment we march again, and we’re counting on you to show up on June 11th, 2022 in Chicago, IL, and cities across the country.

This is the breaking point. Enough is enough.

The leaked draft from the Supreme Court revealed the court’s intention to completely overturn Roe v. Wade, leaving millions of people across our country without legal access to essential health care. We are furious that the Supreme Court plans to ignore half a century of settled law and we know you are, too.

Join us and our coalition partners to RALLY FOR ABORTION JUSTICE in Chicago’s Union Park on Saturday, May 14, starting at 9:30 a.m.

Right now, abortion is still legal under Roe — and we’ll keep fighting to keep it that way.

The once unthinkable is upon us: someone leaked a draft Supreme Court decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade and throw us at the mercy of the states when it comes to legal abortion access. Thanks to our hard work and dedicated activism, Illinois citizens’ reproductive rights are protected – for now. But we must mobilize in support of safe, legal abortion for every American who needs one. Abortion is health care, and health care is a right!

Join local activists on Saturday, May 7 in Federal Plaza to channel your rage and sorrow into concrete action, and to find out what you can do right now to fight back.

Abortion Rights Contingent in May Day March for Labor & Immigrant Rights

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,

Chicago (just south of the “Ashland” Green & Pink lines El station) for a rally before March

March: 11:30 AM

To find our contingent, Look for the green signs and banners!
