Riverside County NOW Cosponsors “Bigger than Roe” Rally on January 22nd

Thank you for everyone who showed up to our rally and others around the country for the 50th anniversary of Roe. Bottom line is Roe may be overturned but it doesn’t mean we are just going to take it, laying down. Look at the faces of people who spoke at our rally today. So much emotions behind this issue and people’s fear of Supreme Court coming after more of our human rights. We got covered in the local press. Full article below and snippets from the article below.
