Join DAW-AAUW Members at the Women’s March on October 2nd to Protect Women’s Reproductive Rights
Women in Texas are facing one of the most pernicious and forceful attacks on their human rights because of Senate Bill 8 that became effective September 1, 2021. This law prohibits a woman's right to choose an abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, even in cases of rape or incest. It also allows private citizens to sue any individual who assists a woman in such an abortion.
This law goes directly against the AAUW’s most recent Reproductive Rights Policy , which states: “AAUW trusts that every woman has the ability to make her own informed choices regarding her reproductive life within the dictates of her own moral and religious beliefs. Further, AAUW believes that these deeply personal decisions should be made without government interference.”
We are going to march on October 2nd in Walnut Creek to demand that this right be protected for all women and girls. Come join us an help make our voices heard!
DAW-AAUW Branch members will join the
Women’s March at
400 Front Street (Danville Green) in Danville, CA Saturday, October 2nd at 2 PM.
And please our DAW march coordinator at Claudiaschwarz@comcast.net know you are coming so we can plan our representation at the march.
Our Membership meeting and Brunch on Saturday was informative and enjoyable. We covered a lot of information and were able to connect a little through Zoom, while hoping for some in-person meetings in the near future.
