Join NOW President Terry O'Neill on Tuesday, Jan. 22, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that recognized women's fundamental right to abortion. NOW affirms that women's access to the full range of reproductive health services -- including safe, legal and affordable abortion care and birth control -- is integral to women's ability to participate equally in our society.
This year our annual candlelight vigil will feature engaging speakers, including:
» Ellie Smeal, Feminist Majority President
» Kimberly Inez McGurie, National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health
» Allison Stouffer, DC NOW
If you're in the D.C. area, we hope you'll join the NOW Action Center outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Jan. 22. Bring your Keep Abortion Legal and NOW rounds and battery-operated candles (note: traditional candles are not allowed outside the Court). NOW will also have some signs and battery-operated votives on hand.
