In the DC area on July 28th? Add your voice.


With a looming potential shift in the balance of the Supreme Court, the stakes for women have never been higher. Now more than ever, it's time to make our voices heard.

The appointment of an ultra-conservative Supreme Court justice could turn back the clock on a range of critical issues that affect women, including the right to birth control and abortion, affirmative action, the environment, and civil rights for women, minorities, lesbian and gay people, and the disabled.
The Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF) interns are calling on all young feminist and progressive leaders to join us July 28 for a briefing on Capitol Hill – "Save the Supreme Court. Save Women’s Lives."
Keynote speakers include Senator Barbara Boxer* (D-CA), FMF President Eleanor Smeal, and National Organization for Women President Kim Gandy, with more to be announced shortly. We must act now to protect our rights. Join us Thursday, July 28 to learn how you can take action to save the court and save women's lives.
Please forward this announcement and the
flyer, which is available for download, to all young feminist and progressive interns, staff, and activists you know. RSVP is strongly recommended. RSVP to supremecourtbriefing@feminist.org or call 703-522-2214 as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you Thursday, July 28!
For equality!
