Tuesday, August 9; Tuesday, August 23; Tuesday, September 6; 8pm; this on-line event requires advance registration

On June 24, the Supreme Court issued a dangerous ruling overturning Roe v. Wade in an unprecedented attack on reproductive freedom. But this fight isn’t just taking place at the Supreme Court. The ACLU is prepared for this moment, and will continue fighting in courts and legislatures, in the streets, and at the ballot box — but we need you with us.

This summer, join ACLU People Power’s Abortion Activist Series, a collection of virtual events and trainings on how you can join the fight for abortion rights, no matter where you live.

Join us every other Tuesday evening at 8pm ET / 5pm PT this summer as we dig into topics like:

• How you can protect yourself and your loved ones from digital surveillance that will be used to criminalize those seeking abortion care.

• ACLU’s state strategy for protecting and expanding reproductive freedom through state-level ballot initiatives, legislation, and direct-candidate engagement — and how you can make a difference.

• ACLU’s 2022 electoral organizing strategy and how you can get out the vote this fall!

Each session will cover a different topic, so sign up to attend as many events as you’d like! RSVP now to save your spot!

[Session 1] Know Your Rights: Digital Privacy and Abortion Access, Tuesday, July 12 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT

When it comes to reproductive rights, your digital trail matters more than you think. As states push abortion out of reach and criminalize care, people who need an abortion have rightfully raised the alarm about the unprecedented access the government — and private entities — have to our digital lives. In this kick-off session, you’ll hear from ACLU legal and advocacy experts about how to secure your digital privacy in a post-Roe world. This session has passed.

[Session 2] ACLU State Strategy for Reproductive Rights: Abortion on the Ballot, Tuesday, July 26 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT

With the federal constitutional right to abortion gone, state constitutional rights are more important than ever. In at least four states this year, abortion access is literally on the ballot. Join this session to learn how you can fight for abortion access at the state level, no matter where you live. This session has passed.

[Session 3] ACLU State Strategy for Reproductive Rights: Part II, Tuesday, August 9 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT

This summer, we expect several state legislatures to enter a special legislative session in order to pass abortion bans, and we’re already gearing up to fight back. Join this session to learn how you can fight for abortion access at the state level, no matter where you live.

[Session 4] ACLU State Strategy for Reproductive Rights: Part III, Tuesday, August 23 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT

Overturning Roe will result in a mass criminalization event in states all across the country. Join us for this training to learn more about the intersection between ACLU criminal legal and reproductive freedom work, as well as what we can do at the state level to fight back against the criminalization of abortion care.

[Session 5] ACLU Electoral Advocacy Priorities: Abortion and the Midterms, Tuesday, September 6 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT

In this session, we’ll turn our attention to the upcoming midterm elections and get you trained up on voter education and get-out-the-vote tactics, with a focus on reproductive freedom and voting rights.
