Central Phoenix • Inez Casiano NOW – Candlelight Vigil for Reproductive Justice

October 3 @ 7:30 pm

Join us in remembering Rosaura “Rosie” Jiménez and the many other known and unknown women who have died from the inability to access full reproductive health care—and in their memory, fight for comprehensive reproductive justice!
October 3 is the anniversary of Jiménez death from a back-alley abortion after the Hyde Amendment was passed in 1977. It is also the day before the U.S. Supreme Court opens its fall session, during which it will hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that poses a dangerous threat to legalized abortion in the United States.
We demand:
-Protect & expand Roe v. Wade; safe, legal abortion on demand without apology
-Repeal the Hyde Amendment
-Overturn state barriers to reproductive choices
-Stop forced sterilization
-No to caged kids, forced assimilation, & child welfare abuses
-End medical & environmental racism; for universal healthcare
-Defend queer & trans families
-Guarantee medically sound sex education & affordable childcare
-Uphold social progress with expanded voting rights & strong unions
