BACKGROUND:

A solid majority in this country believes that decisions about reproductive health care, including family planning and abortion, should be left to each individual. Yet extremist politicians are trying to deny women this fundamental right. Their actions have been called a "war on women" for good reason.

Although we had major victories in November, the battle is far from over. The House of Representatives and state legislatures have focused on eliminating access to basic reproductive health care services and contraception as well as abortion care, with severe consequences for women. We must get the word out to policymakers -- and each other -- that we are many, powerful and committed.

NOW, in partnership with the Trust Women/Silver Ribbon Campaign and more than 50 organizations nationwide, is taking a stand through an exciting National Online March. Together we'll send messages to policymakers. Those messages will appear on a common online map, and we'll see our numbers grow in real time. Our goal is to send the strongest possible message for reproductive justice during Trust Women Week (Jan. 22-28).
