March with us on MAY 14

Saturday May 14

or click on poster
National Day of Action
A collaboration with
Womens March, Planned Parenthood,
Ultraviolet and others

On May 14, we demand: BANS OFF OUR BODIES!

Sponsored by Hudson Valley Strong
 in partnership with Indivisible Ulster 

Meet at Academy Green Park in Kingston
238 Clinton Ave.
in Uptown Kingston
We will leave from there
and march to the Farmer’s Market

This is not a rally.
This is a march only.

We will have signs but please bring your own too.
Wear masks or we will supply you with one
Please – NO coat hangers or Handmaid’s Tale imagery

This leaked draft opinion is just the beginning: 
when the Supreme Court announces their official decision,
26 states could ban abortion, meaning millions of people
– over half the country –
could lose local access to abortion care
We will make it clear to anti-choice extremists
that we will not stand by quietly as they attempt to control our bodies
