Protest the Hobby Lobby decision
and attacks on women's rights!

DC Hobby Lobby Action Event

Washington D.C. area: Laurel, Maryland

Nationwide actions through July 13 demand:

Stop the War on Women's Rights!
Health Care Includes Contraception!
Free, safe, legal abortion on demand!

Join the week of action to protest the Hobby Lobby decision and attacks on women’s rights. Now is the time to say "We won't go back!" The decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby constitutes an immediate attack on women’s health and reproductive rights. The Supreme Court is one more weapon in the arsenal of the right-wing, anti-woman bigots who would deny women the right to control our bodies. Actions are being planned across the country. We are building a nationwide movement of women and their allies to fight back against the right wing. Join us!
