#StoptheBans Rally and Congressional Recess
First of all, thank you to all the members of the Beehive that showed up to the #StoptheBans Rally on May 21st. We are so grateful for the hundreds of supporters that swarmed the Utah Capitol to peacefully speak out and make clear that the unconstitutional abortion bans—across the country and in Utah—must stop. As our very own Saundra Stokes said, “Let’s organize our outrage.” We will continue that organizing work for the rest of 2019 and into 2020.
From May 24th to June 2nd, Congress will be on recess for the holiday. There are many ways that you can take action during this time, especially focused on Title X. For instance, a few members of Congress will be holding town halls (including John Curtis). You could attend and ask your representative a question like this, “Congress is working to pass a ‘Title X Protection,’ which would protect the nation’s leading program for affordable birth control, cancer screenings and STI testing, a program that 36,000 Utahns depend on. Will you commit to supporting Title X and vote for this protection?”
