Decision Day Action in West Hollywood: We Won’t Go Back

June 24 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT

In 1993, the City of West Hollywood became the nation’s first declared pro-choice city. In reaction to today’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, elected and appointed officials and community members, and organizations will be holding a candlelight vigil and march at West Hollywood Park at 7 p.m. People will gather at the park and then march. PLEASE RSVP HERE. Bans off our bodies!

A majority of the court voted to strike down the landmark abortion rights decisions. The opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision – Planned Parenthood v. Casey – that largely maintained the right. “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito writes.

West Hollywood Mayor Lauren Meister, West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tempore Sepi Shyne, West Hollywood City Councilmember John Erickson+ Other City Officials TBD
Other leaders and organizations to be announced.
