“Fifty years after the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a radical right-wing movement hijacked our Courts and eliminated federal protections for abortions. But as the fight turns to the States - they are going to learn that the overwhelming majority of Americans in all States support abortion rights - and women will fight to protect our rights and our lives,” said Rachel Carmona, Executive Director of Women’s March. “We are taking our fight to every state in this country on January 22. Our movement is strong. Our fight is #BiggerThanRoe.”

The #BiggerThanRoe events across the country are organized by Women’s March, with support from almost 50 organizations and groups including MARRCH, Planned Parenthood, Working Families Power,  the National Organization for Women,and National Women’s Law Center. A full list can be found here.
