This week BlueWaveNJ joined progressive organizations across the country in hosting a rally for the National Day of Action to #StopTheBans and protect women's rights. We rallied in Montclair with over 150 attendees, to stand up to the draconian and cruel anti-abortion bills being proposed in states across the country.
We had local leaders, activists, and elected officials speak to the importance of legal abortion.

It is deeply disturbing that anti-abortion and anti-women rhetoric is still prevalent throughout our country. Republicans in legislatures across the US, including here in NJ, have sponsored bills with the sole purpose of controlling women's bodies and criminalizing the right to an abortion. Learn about the NJ bill and its sponsors here.
