It’s time to go BIG and we Need YOUR HELP!
Roe v. Wade is one newly appointed Supreme Court Justice from being challenged and possibly overturned. While the pro-life politicians have been chipping away at the reproductive freedom that Roe has granted us, the leadership of the Rhode Island General Assembly has failed to act to protect its citizens. We must take bold action to protect Roe v. Wade and reproductive rights now in Rhode Island and we need your help.
Help us to raise awareness of the threat to reproductive rights in Rhode Island and be a part of the action to keep abortion and contraception safe and legal in our state.
Access to safe and legal abortion affects us all and the way we mobilize for change is by sharing our stories and publicly showing our support. We have resurrected a plan used in the 1980’s. As was done all those years ago, we are planning a story sharing event and putting a full-page signature ad in the Providence Journal.
Help us take a bold public action in the paper!
We invite all supporters of Reproductive Freedom to participate in a full-page advertisement in the Providence Journal. If this ad is signed by the 7 in 10 Rhode Islanders that support Roe v. Wade, and with a little contribution from the vast majority of us that support Roe, we can make this happen!
Why the full-page ad? Because it works! This ad will show the vast and overwhelming support for Roe v. Wade in Rhode Island, and will be a call to action. The biggest expense is the roughly $5,100 for the cost of the full-page version of it. This needs to be paid up front and we need your help!
How can I help with the ad?
Sponsor: Donate $250.00 or more to be listed as an ad sponsor. This could be you, a business, an organization you work with – let your fellow Rhode Islanders know you are a proud reproductive freedom fighter! (Please make checks payable to The Woman Project)
Individual Signer: It is not required to pay to be listed, but we are asking for a donation of $10.00 or more to help with the payment of this. We need as many names as possible to show the power of the support for reproductive rights in Rhode Island. A signed release will put your name in this ad. This means your friends, family, neighbors, and love ones will know you want to protect Roe v. Wade. Maybe they want to get their name on the list too?
Share a Story!
After the advertisement is posted, we invite all people impacted by Roe v. Wade to come share their stories. All abortion stories; personal stories, the stories of those they love from pre-Roe days, and stories of life after Roe and its impact.
We are organizing a SpeakOut for you to share them on Oct. 21 at the First Unitarian Church, 1 Benevolent St, Providence, RI 02906, Beginning at 2pm and ending at 5pm. Save the date and join us!
Thank you for your support, your passion, and your participation!
