It is a little late to post this, but better late then never....rally tomorrow August 1
From Women Speak for themselves (womenspeakforthemselves.com
We have a permit from the Park Service: 11:30-12:30 Lafayette Park, Washington DC, Pennsylvania Ave. at 16th, (In front of the White House!! yea!). Can start assembling around 11:00.
We've ordered about 60 signs. Will need you to bring your own too though! About 3'x3' or 2'x 3', and NOT on sticks please.
Some possible slogans?
- Women For Religious Freedom
- Women Against the HHS Contraception and Abortion Mandate
- Women can Speak for Themselves !! [Pelosi/Sebelius, etc.....]
... and others dreamed up by your fertile brains. Try to keep them short, punchy, and positive!
I probably have 75-100 women coming now. Would be great to have about 50 more!
In the spirit of WSFT, I will need you to arrange to get yourselves there and home please. I don't have a spare minute to arrange for proper drop off and pick up spots or other transportation. I'm so sorry but I just can't....
But WSFT will organize marshals, first aid, water and a series of two minute speeches, by our members.
I have some speakers. FOR SPEAKERS, YOU WILL HAVE A BULLHORN, NOT A MIC, and are limited to two minutes each please.
I could use few more speakers who work at religious institutions but want them to be free to choose insurance coverage that respects their religious integrity.
After the rally, there is the possibility that we could go to the Capitol Visitors Center and meet some female staffers or Representatives. We are working on this. We would need to cab to the Capitol, 16 blocks away.
