HELLO Reproductive Freedom Fighters!
The Woman Project (TWP) is organizing a poster campaign to blanket the state with the same poster at the same time, 4 to 5 times in the next 6 months. We need each of the 75 State House district represented. We are looking for 1 lead organizer (Captain) per district and 4-5 people to help. Can you help us? Anyone who is interested in seeing access to women’s healthcare protected, including abortions, is welcome to join us- ALWAYS!
WHY is this happening?
When Roe v. Wade is overturned, RI will have no law to protect safe and legal abortion access. We are putting the pressure on THE STATE to pass the bill that would protect people from having to go out of state to have an abortion, or worse yet, bypassing our health care system. This bill is called the Reproductive Health Care Act (RHCA). It has been introduced for 25 years and has NOT passed! The last few years this bill has been held up by the Democratic Speaker of the House, Nicolas Mattiello, who is right-to-life endorsed.
HOW do we do this?
TWP is planning on 4-5 moments in our future that we will all mobilize together to hang/post our posters overnight for the greatest impact. We will follow up with more details after this group of freedom fighters is compiled.
WHAT will the poster say?
We are working on crafting this message now. We were inspired by Ireland’s success and know we can do the same thing in Rhode Island. Some examples might be: “No Roe v. Wade = No Legal Abortions in RI” with a quick call to action after.
Thank you for considering doing this. SIGN UP
