I Am Woman Hear Me Roar

Pro-Choice Walk July 31st
This is the pro-choice walk I went on Sunday and as you can see we came out in great numbers there were at least TWO HUNDRED people and this Sunday for the final day of Summer Of Mercy 2011 there will at least that many. Please watch this clip of the walk. The video was done by my friend Luke Kuhn. 

From Summer of Choice 2011

Our Kick-Off Walk on Sunday was nothing short of a triumph. NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland posted a great photo album of the day of the walk, and the Washington Post has a story and photos. Our own careful count showed a total of 220 to 240 supporters with us that afternoon, and we raised approximately $2,000 in cash donations for the non-profit Abortion Access Fund to add to the online fundraising total of $10,000. We were very delighted that our number one fundraiser, Zoe Nicholson, was able to be with us in person that day all the way from her home in California. Rounding out our top 10 fundraisers were second-place Rivka C Gates, Neda Bolourian, Deva Love, Kathryn Ranieri, Nicole Price, Susana M Vega, Kari A Rinker, Alberta Maschal, and Claire B Edwards. We are grateful beyond words for the inspiring collective effort of all our fundraisers, donors, walkers, volunteers, and horn-honkers who made the day such a success.
There are still several more days of Peaceful Pro-Choice Presence yet to go, which means there is still time for you to join us. We'd like to extend a particular invitation to come out this Sunday afternoon at 1:30 PM, when, in addition to our Peaceful Pro-Choice Presence, we are also hosting an Interfaith Prayer Circle for Choice. The event will be led by the Reverend Lynn Strauss, Unitarian Universalist Minister serving in Montgomery Count, and all are welcome.
All of us are so thrilled at the outpouring of support from this community. We are truly blessed to have so many steadfast friends. Your support helps us to continue our much-needed work. A million thanks--Dr. Carhart and all of us are grateful, and so are the women we serve.
