The Asheville “Freedom for All: Rally for Reproductive Justice and Abortion Access” rally that was postponed in August due to inclement weather has been rescheduled to Mon., October 3.
Where? The Orange Peel; 101 Biltmore Ave., Asheville
Doors open at 5:30pm; Program 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Why? To hear from candidates, abortion providers, and activists on how you can get involved to protect our rights in this midterm election. We are one bad election from losing access to abortion in NC and this is going to take an all-hands-on-deck effort to get out the vote this November.
Support the Carolina Abortion Fund which offers a confidential, toll free hotline providing financial, practical, and emotional support to callers in North and South Carolina trying to access abortion healthcare.
Reproductive Justice (RJ): Expanding Our Social Justice Calling.
Facilitators: Jane Bramham, Neal Jones, Rev. Claudia
Initially scheduled for the Fall, we decided encouraging engagement with UU the Vote this fall is the best way to support reproductive justice and access to abortion healthcare in NC for women and our trans and nonbinary siblings. The RJ program will be offered in January 2023.
UU the Vote: We are part of a network of 22 UU congregations across the state who have come together to write 27,000 postcards to voters of the Global Majority in Cabarrus County in partnership with Reclaim our Vote. Cabarrus is one the three counties whose vote for candidates supporting access to abortion healthcare will be crucial in maintaining access to abortion in NC. On Sunday, October 9 at 9:30 am we will have another big post carding push! Join us!
