SaveSCOTUS – Day of Action

August 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

On Women’s Equality Day, August 26th, events will be held in all 50 states to speak out against Kavanaugh and demand that our representatives in Washington act NOW to protect our most necessary rights and freedoms. With so much at stake, we cannot afford to back down.

Kavanaugh would rule against reproductive freedom, health care, the environment, voting rights, workers’ rights, LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights and racial justice — everything is on the line. Kavanaugh’s confirmation is not a given; together we can make sure he never sits on the bench.

Join us to make our voices heard all the way to Washington.

When: Sunday, August 26th
Time: 1-2:30pm
Where: Federal Plaza, 219 S Dearborn St, Chicago IL
