logo for Bans off our Bodies march

Bans Off Our Bodies NYC

On Monday, May 2nd, Politico published a leaked draft Supreme Court majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that explicitly overturns Roe v. Wade. This is an unprecedented leak from the court that, if true, would reverse nearly 50 years of precedent and explicitly end federal constitutional protections for abortion. 26 states could move quickly to ban abortion, meaning millions of people might live without local access to abortion. The people in your community and across the country deserve the power and freedom to make their own personal reproductive health care decisions.

After you march it is time to get to work! Here are organizations in YOUR community that can help you find the right fit for you talents and time.

Abortion Access Front uses humor to destigmatize abortion and expose extremist anti-choice forces. AAF creates provocative videos and social media content to educate people on discriminatory abortion laws that disproportionately impact people of color. AAF also supports and raises awareness about independent abortion providers that bear the brunt of anti-abortion legislation and harassment.
