NCJW|LA with Justice Organizations Lead Rally to Protect Reproduction Rights

The constant call of 2017 has been rally, take action. Michelle Obama told us during her last official White House speech, “Don’t be afraid. Be focused. Be empowered.”

On the eve of the inauguration, National Council of Jewish Women Los Angeles (NCJW|LA) and reproductive health and justice organizations will do just that by leading a Rally to Save Roe. They will demonstrate the commitment to uphold the right to abortion established 44 years ago in the historic 1973 Supreme Court Case, Roe vs. Wade.

The event brings together notable speakers and inspiring performances. After the powerful rally, the community of organizations will provide advocacy training to give attendees practical tools to put beliefs into action in their community. Additionally, there will be opportunities and supplies for the public to make signs in preparation for the March for Women in LA on January 21.

Confirmed speakers:

  • State Senator Holly Mitchell
  • LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl
  • Juana Rosa Cavero, California Coalition for Reproductive Freedom
  • Councilmember Lindsey Horvath
  • Hector Villagra, ACLU of Southern California
  • Hillary Selvin, National Council of Jewish Women, Los Angeles
  • Remy Holwick
  • Marcie Smolin (MC)
