Do you live in the Bay Area? Are you looking for a way to celebrate the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade? Then bring your signs, your noise makers, and your bullhorns, and parade your Pro-Choice self down the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Meet up with the Bay Area Coalition of Reproductive Rights (BACORR) January 22, 2011 at Harry Bridges Plaza, the island strip in front of the San Francisco Ferry Building at 11:00 AM, and march at 12:00.
BACORR started in 1988 with two goals: defending Bay Area clinics against the harassment and violence, and building a diverse movement of reproductive rights activists to a strong community base of support for reproductive rights and family planning clinics.
Somer Leon is one of the organizers of the BACORR parade. “Sadly, the anti-choice ‘Walk for Life’ will be coming into SF the same day in support of criminalizing abortions,” says Leon. “Now, more than ever, we need to be vocal, be present, and be active in our support for pro-choice policies.”
