Join Louisiana residents to protect reproductive rights! No religion or corporation should decide our healthcare choices! Let's create a united front to show lawmakers we won't take this lying down!!

- INVITE EVERYONE YOU KNOW! Kids are welcome, too!

This will be a peaceful demonstration on the grass in front of the main entrance to the Elmwood Shopping Center, essentially in front of La Madeline.

- Please bring your own signs. (You can look for great slogans online to help you!)

- Try to wear ORANGE or BLUE (colors of Hobby Lobby).

    Really invigorating. We had about 48 people total, so we definitely know more about how to pull this off. Many thanks to Emma and Amanda for their fantastic work on making it happen!

    What exactly is going on at Hobby Lobby that requires a protest? I have not heard much at all about this. Just curious. I am not sure I can attend but may be able to provide a bit of press coverage.

      You can do a Google search of Hobby Lobby Supreme Court Case and you'll get all updates on the situation if you haven't heard about it in the news.

      Thanks. I haven't heard much about it at all. I do now it relates to birth control though.

    According to Nola.com they aren't opening until July 14. http://www.nola.com/business/index.ssf/2014/07/hobby_lobby_to_open_doors_in_h.html will the protest be moved?

      I think the idea is to show some resistance no matter when it is happening. The weekend before seems okay to at least be noticed.

      I checked the official Hobby Lobby website before I scheduled the event. Also, just to be sure, just checked again and the location is now listed as a current store.

    There will be a sign making party on Friday night at 7pm in the upstairs space at Rue de la Course on Oak and Carrollton for anyone who'd like to have company while creating your message.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
