1:00pm – 3:00pm
1125 17th St. Denver, CO
Please join us at Skyline Park on 17th and Arapahoe, right outside of Sen. Cory Gardner’s office, on Saturday February 11th at 1:00pm to show our support for Planned Parenthood and to demand that Sen. Gardner oppose any actions being taken to defund Planned Parenthood
This event will feature speakers from the community and personal testimonials about the positive impact Planned Parenthood has had on the lives of Coloradoans. We will have a station for making donations to Planned Parenthood and materials for writing letters to Sen. Gardner. Organizers will collect letters to Sen. Gardner at the event to personally deliver to his office when we are scheduled to meet with his staff the following week.
We are expecting a huge turnout and we want to reiterate that this type of event does create a lot of noise politically. We will collect hundreds (or thousands!) of letters of support and raise much needed funds at the same time. All of this while coming together as a community and continuing to show that we are in this marathon and we will take these issues on, one by one, together. This is how we create change.
As much as we all would love to go to our local Planned Parenthood clinics and fight back against anti-choice protests planned for the day of our rally, those actions will not create change and could in fact be harmful to the very patients, providers, and support staff we seek to support. What we can do is hold our representatives accountable and raise funds to keep the doors open at Planned Parenthood clinics in the Rocky Mountain region. OUR ORGANIZERS WILL NOT HOLD ANY GATHERING OR COUNTER PROTEST AT PPRM.
