For many years, CTU has advocated for women’s right to control our own bodies. Our majority-female union established a Women’s Rights Committee in the 1970s to advance our rights in the workplace and in society. We invite you to join us on Saturday, October 2 at Daley Plaza at 11:30 a.m. We’ll meet on the southwest corner of the plaza, at Clark & Washington.
Together we will raise our voices to demand that women in Texas, Mississippi and all over the nation have the right to access safe, legal abortion. We know that the outrageous laws recently passed will endanger poor women the most and will lead to a resurgence in back-alley abortions. Stand with us!
