Florida International Women's Day Mobilization - Rally on Tally Lobby Day

FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY MOBILIZATION Starts: March 6th at 8 PM – Ends: March 7 at 6 PM Florida State Capitol Building -- 400 Monroe St, Tallahassee, Florida 32301 We need you to get on the bus and take back our capital!! Across the state of Florida, women are under attack. Black women are dying at disproportionate rates during childbirth. Immigrant women are being separated from their children in detention centers. Black Trans women and Indigenous women are disproportionately impacted by violence in our state. Our ability to choose how and when we birth and raise children is becoming more and more limited with each legislative session. With the threats to women increasing across the state, right now is a great and important time to do everything possible to pull the needle towards more equity and justice. Women have come a long way, yet there's still more to be achieved. In honor of International Women's Day 2019, we join women around the world, demanding a more fair and equitable Florida. Join Dignity Florida, Florida Immigrant Coalition, Florida Planned Parenthood Alliance, Miami Workers Center, The New Florida Majority, NLIRH FL Latina Advocacy Network - FL LAN, Tallahassee FL NOW (National Organization for Women), Women's March Florida and other statewide partners at the Florida State Capitol on March 7 to honor the lives of women before us, those who are here now, and those who are still to come.
