in San Diego, Women's Rights

On Tuesday, May 21, hundreds of women – with a few men – rallied in front of the Federal Court House in downtown San Diego – joining rallies in 50 states and Puerto Rico to say “Our bodies! Our choice!”

It was a nationwide protest against the onslaught of anti-abortion legislation being passed in State Houses across the South and Mid-West – all aiming to destroy Roe v Wade.

Locally, San Diego Indivisible and Women’s March San Diego joined together to organize the rally “in Support of Women’s Rights & Reproductive Freedom !”

A number of speakers addressed the crowd and shared their stories:

  • Norma Chavez Peterson of ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties ,
  • Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest VP
  • Nora Vargas for County Supervisor ,
  • Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America leader Wendy Wheatcroft,
  • Tasha Williamson Founder of the Compassion Project and Building Justice,
  • Nathan Fletcher San Diego County Board of Supervisors,
  • Adrian Donovan Scott LGBTQ+ Community Advocate,
  • Sarah Shaftel Founder Allies for Women,
  • Jordan Malinalcihuatl Trans-Border advocate & millennial warrior
  • closing speech & calls to action by Kim Sontag-Mulder, President of the San Diego chapter of National Organization for Women (NOW) ,
  • Kenya Taylor a youth, family & senior advocate and our beloved First UU Reverend Doctor Beth Johnson of Faith Leaders for Reproductive Justice?
