Action, Announcements

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Jefferson City, Missouri

10:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M.

On Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, women and men from around the state of Missouri will gather for a rally at the Missouri State Capitol Building to say “Enough is Enough.”

The event is hosted by Unite Against the War on Women, a new organization rapidly gaining steam nationwide. Concurrent rallies are scheduled for all 50 states that day in a show of strength against recent threats to women’s rights.  “It is essential that we stand up for our rights now and work together against this effort to destroy women’s rights. On April 28th, we will have the opportunity to join a national movement against the war on women. Join us to give your support,” Paula Willmarth, co-leader of Unite Women Missouri stated.

While the immediate impetus for Unite Women is the assault on reproductive rights, the threat to women is inclusive of other concerns, including education, equal pay for equal work, voter suppression and crimes against women and children.

DETAILS FOR THE MARCH:
10:00-10:30am Gather at James C. Kirkpatrick State Information Bldg.
10:30-11:00am Marching East on Main Street to South Lawn of Capitol
