Bigger Than Roe Colorado Springs
We are ALL born free and equal in dignity and rights. The Supreme Court of the U.S. and the United States Congress have failed in their obligation to protect, respect, and uphold our human rights. The women's wave delivered a blow to anti-freedom politicians in the 2022 midterms, and now we are taking the fight out of D.C. and into every single state in this country.
On January 22, 2023, the anniversary of Roe V Wade, as we mourn the loss of nearly 50 years of constitutional protections, we send another clear message:
The midterms were just the beginning. We are not going gently. We are taking our fight to every state house and every state legislator in this country. We are putting all politicians at every level of government on notice: If you come for our families, our freedoms, or our future, we are coming for your seat. Our movement is strong. Our movement is growing.
Our movement is Bigger than Roe.

Narrative from Gary B follows.
"Women's March" event happening Saturday, January 21 in Colorado Springs' (America the Beautiful) Park at 11 am to 1:00 pm.
The group that uses the web site www.WomensMarch.com is running another attempt at a nationwide series of women's marches. They say the are the same group that organized the extremely successful and heavily attended event a few years ago. They attempted an event just before the 2022 election. Nationally they had lots of sites showing on their US map. Even one in Colorado Springs. But the local one was not very well promoted and only turned out a few dozen participants. They had some very good speakers however. I expect this event will be slight larger, but I don't expect the power and magnitude of the 2017 event. Hopeful they will continue building energy for future events.
Over the past several decades January has been a popular month for these events since it was the month when the Supreme Court ruling in the case Roe v. Wade was announced "legalizing" reproductive rights in the USA.
