Walk for Choice This Saturday in Nashville
Walk for Choice events will be held in cities all across the United States this Saturday to show support for abortion rights in response to recent anti-choice legislation — especially HR 3, The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
The Nashville Walk for Choice event is being held this Saturday, February 26 from noon to 3 pm. The route for the Walk should be announced around noon on Friday. More details are available on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=126279230779223, where you can indicate that you will attend and send invitations to your other pro-choice contacts on the site.
Officially, the event is not a “march” — which would require parade permits and such. Organizers have encouraged planners to select routes that people can walk around and drop in and out of at any time, rather than a walk with a set start and end point.
Routes are not being released until noon on Friday, so it is not yet possible to tell about the accessibility of the route. Organizers were instructed to select routes that included safe places for individuals to sit or stand.
