Our bodies, Our Lives, Our Right to Decide: A Rally for Choice!

Every year during Lent, anti-choice groups around the country organize protests at reproductive health clinics to shame and harass patients. An anti-choice group is planning to do this on Saturday, April 13 here in San José. We can’t ignore these threats to our rights – it’s time to stand up!
This event is a call to action for those who believe every person has a right to bodily autonomy. Every person has the right to choose what is best for them, whether that’s painting their nails, eating a certain diet, having kids or no kids, transitioning from one gender to another, or ending a pregnancy. Let’s get together for one Saturday morning to talk, sing, and chant for choice and to remind these bigots that San José in a pro-choice city!
This will be a positive and non-confrontational event! People of all backgrounds, statuses, and identities who want to fight for choice are welcome!
A few things to note:
- To ensure everyone feels safe, we will have a security team. We will not be engaging with any of the anti-choice protesters (i.e. talking, shouting, physically touching, etc.)
- Please wear either pink or red so we can easily identify who is part of the rally.
- Please bring signs!
