Bigger Than Roe 2024

PHX-ControlShiftEventBanenr_833x345 (4).png

As we approach January 22, 2024, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we reaffirm our commitment to reproductive freedom for all. Our campaign extends to every state and every legislator, challenging politicians at all levels: if you threaten our families, our freedoms, or our future, we will unseat you. We will not stop until we win.

Drawing inspiration from recent ballot measures, we have witnessed a powerful truth: when abortion rights are on the ballot, we win. These victories illuminate a fundamental reality: A supermajority of Americans supports reproductive freedom.

The weekend of January 20-21, 2024, we united to send an unequivocal message: Our resolve is unyielding. Our movement is not just about Roe; it is about safeguarding the rights and freedoms for all, now and for future generations. We are the majority, and our voices will be heard.

This march was a strategic intervention to galvanize voters for the 2024 elections. We're showing up to secure abortion access and counter far-right extremism.



Why Arizona?

Arizona is the next major abortion battleground. In selecting Arizona for our 2024 National Women’s March, we focus on a key truth: women consistently show up to vote when abortion rights are at stake. As one of the nine states with anticipated ballot measures around abortion rights, Arizona's role is crucial. It's not just a battleground for rights; it's a key swing state that will shape the 2024 elections. Our presence here is a statement: Women vote to defend abortion rights, and in doing so, we defend democracy from far-right extremism and GOP policies that threaten our freedoms and values. RSVP to join us in Phoenix here.

What should I bring?

  • Small backpacks and bags are allowed. We recommend you fill them with water, snacks, etc.

  • A sign

  • Comfortable shoes

  • Mask & Hand sanitizer

  • Portable phone charger

  • Your feminist spirit, your defiance to injustice, and your demands to protect our freedoms

What should I NOT bring?

  • Any weapons, or anything that can be construed as a weapon, including pocket knives, multi-tools, mace, scissors, etc.

  • Any illegal drugs

  • Coat-hanger imagery: We do not want to accidentally reinforce the right wing talking points that self-managed abortions are dangerous, scary and harmful.

  • Handmaid’s Tale theme: The use of Handmaid's Tale imagery to characterize the controlling of women’s reproduction has proliferated, primarily by white women across the country, since the show has gained popularity. This message continues to create more fragmentation, often around race and class, because it erases the fact that Black women, undocumented women, incarcerated women, poor women and disabled women have always had their reproduction freedom controlled in this country. This is not a dystopian past or future.

What are the COVID safety measures?

Women's March takes the spread of COVID seriously. Our top priority is to make sure everyone feels comfortable and safe.

  • Masks: We highly recommend that attendees bring and wear their own mask (ideally an N95) at all times during the event but masks are not required.
