Survivors and allies across the country will wear black and walk out to show they stand with Dr. Blasey Ford and oppose Brett Kavanaugh 

On Monday, September 24th, survivors, allies, and organizations will host a nationwide walkout and moment of solidarity with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

At 1:00 pm EST, survivors and allies across the country will wear black, walk out of their workplaces, homes, and classrooms, and post photos online with the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors. Dr. Blasey Ford has bravely come forward with her story of sexual assault at the hands of Brett Kavanaugh, despite knowing this will come at great cost to her life and her family. Her willingness to testify in the face of relentless bullying, victim-blaming, and unfair Committee process by Republicans is yet another symbol of her courage and her willingness to speak her truth. She is not alone. Allies want her to know they have her back.

If someone can’t walk out, they can show their support by posting a video or a picture to their social media.

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
