DENVER: On Wednesday, November 15th, reproductive rights activists, concerned citizens, and elected officials from both parties will rally in five major cities to denounce President Trump’s executive order that allows employers to take away birth control coverage from health insurance plans on the basis of religious or moral objections. Women, families, faith leaders, and those who rely on access to affordable birth control, will rally at #HandsOffMyBC events outside of U.S. at Health and Human Services offices in Atlanta, GA, Dallas, TX, Denver, CO, Kansas City, MO, and Washington, D.C.

Attendees will unite in solidarity with those impacted by President Trump’s dangerous policies, and demand that the Trump administration and Congress stop their dangerous attacks on Americans’ reproductive health decisions.
