Join NOW at National Lobby Day and Rally to Stand Up for Women's Health


National Organization for Women Action Alert

Join NOW at National Lobby Day and Rally to Stand Up for Women's Health

take action

On Thursday, April 7, gather with abortion rights advocates in Washington, D.C., to stand up for women's health. We must stop the War on Women now.

If the right wing gets its way, millions of dollars will be cut from family planning clinics in this year's budget, and these programs will be permanently de-funded. Women will be allowed to die in public hospitals that refuse to perform life-saving abortion procedures. Public funding for abortion care will be outlawed, and health insurance plans will stop covering abortion care.

Lobby visits will take place on Capitol Hill in the morning and afternoon, with a rally on the National Mall at 11:30 am. Together, we will demand that Congress put an end to the barrage of attacks on women's reproductive rights.

If you don't live in the D.C., area, a bus may be departing from a city close to you. Check out the list below, and reserve your seat now to stand up for women's health.
