in details

The Supreme Court’s recent repeal of Roe v. Wade, who set a national precedent for legal abortion, has sparked protests across the US over the past week. Now that states have full control over abortion regulation, activists have also begun mobilizing voters and leaders to pass laws that protect their reproductive rights. They have also been fighting back by raising funds for those who need help paying for abortions, connecting these people with “safe spaces,” and calling on law enforcement officials to minimize the arrest and prosecution of abortion providers and seekers.

Reproductive rights activists in the Augusta area have scheduled several upcoming events to express their dissent and build support. Here are some of them:
