WGNRR: September 28 Global Day of Action website

 

We are very excited to announce that the website for the September 28 Global Day of Action for Access to Safe and Legal Abortion is now live!

This website is a platform for all reproductive justice activists who have chosen to mobilise on September 28 Global Day of Action to make their demands heard. The website records the actions individuals, organizations and governments worldwide are taking to defend, protect and fulfill women’s right to accessible, safe and legal abortion. It offers resources and educational materials on abortion rights advocacy as well as equips activists with hands on materials for action taking.

 

We encourage you to share your planned activities for September 28 and we welcome your agreement to feature your activities and your calls for action along with your logos on the website.  You can see the examples of the planned actions by several organizations which mobilise for September 28 in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America here: http://www.september28.org/september-28-actions/
