A little over a month ago, on February 8, I attend the historic Moral March in Raleigh, North Carolina. I joined 25,000 other activists to stand up for what I believe- that elected officials should not be able to regulate my body and my decisions to have comprehensive reproductive healthcare. An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere and what's happening in North Carolina has implications across the nation.
I attended the Moral March in Raleigh, North Carolina with Planned Parenthood. I wanted to march with an organization that I care deeply about. During the legislative session this summer, many joined Planned Parenthood as they condemned the North Carolina state legislature's hypocritical attacks on women's health. As a huge Planned Parenthood supporter and an advocate for women's rights and access to basic healthcare, I was inspired to add my voice to the fight for a just and free North Carolina and more importantly, a free nation.
This march brought together a diverse group of citizens, fighting for basic human rights in fair elections, healthcare for all, excellent public education, a clean environment and a woman's right to make her own health decisions. I was inspired to be in the presence of so many folks representing all different backgrounds and interests as we marched for a better world that represents and includes all people.
