Thousands to March In Denver Saturday

Supporting Women’s Exclusive Right To Make Own Decisions

On April 28th, 2012, at 9:30am, thousands of Colorado women and their family members will gather at Civic Center Park’s Greek Amphitheater for a Rally to protect women’s access to health care, and for the right of each woman to make her own health care decisions. State and federal legislators, musicians, poets, community leaders, and ordinary Coloradans will be addressing current legislation in Colorado and other states. Following the rally, attendees will march around the State Capitol and back around Civic Center Park to where they started.

Presenters at the Rally will include:

Human Rights Attorney Beth Klein

Musical Comedy by “The Raging Grannies”

Unitarian Universalist Reverend Dr. Nori Rost

Rosemary Harris Lytle, CO NAACP State President

CO State Representatives Crisanta Duran, and Lois Court

Award-winning Poetry Slam Artists, Suzi Q and Jen Rinaldi

Music By The Foxfield Four (formerly the David James Band)

State Representative and US Congressional Candidate Joe Miklosi

State Senators Morgan Carroll, Rev. Lucia Guzman, and Betty Boyd

State Senate President and US Congressional Candidate Brandon Shaffer

The Rally and March have been organized by a grassroots group of Colorado women, primarily using social media, following talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s personal attack on Law Student Sandra Fluke, and Foster Friess’s comment that women should “put an aspirin between their knees” as a form of birth control. According to the Guttmacher Institute, more than 1100 separate provisions were presented in state legislatures across the country in 2011 which attempted to limit a woman’s family planning options or access to health care. Approximately 135 of them were passed and became law.

Lone Tree resident Jean Tinley plans to bring her whole family to the March. “Women’s reproductive healthcare should remain in our hands and those of our doctors, not legislators. Family planning is a personal and private decision”, she said.

“Extremists in Congress like Mike Coffman are deliberately increasing the cost of health care for millions of women. At the same time, they have let the Violence Against Women Act expire. It is outrageous” said State Representative Joe Miklosi.

As George Bush so fondly like to ask, are you with us or against us?

    1. In the midst of 24/7 organizing for this, I caught a monster cold (bronchitis?) so I’ve been fighting brain fog. Appreciate your help.

      We need all the help we can get getting the word out about this.




      Group newsletters

      Personal phone calls,


      Would appreciate everyone’s help! Thanks!

    1. We can definitely use more help getting the word out, if your able. Here’s some ideas:

      * Facebook status posts with website address or facebook page “We Are Women March – Colorado”.

      * Add like-minded friends to join this page (above right).

      * Send an email with the march and rally information to your friends.

      * Add to your organizations facebook page or send out by email.

      * Call a few friends and ask if they’re coming.

      * Stand out on the 16th street mall and pass out homemade fliers.

      * Wear “Unite Women 4/28” on your belly on a nice day and parade around campus wearing a halter.

      * Put posters up in your dorm, work, bus stops, coffee shops, libraries, liberal church/temple/synagogue, etc.

      * Call your favorite radio stations and tell them you want coverage.

      * Call your favorite news station and tell them you want coverage.

      * Call your choice-friendly legislators and tell them you want them to put it out in their emails.

      * Invite your friends and family to breakfast at your house that morning, and go together!

      * Blog about it!

      * Tweet about it. Ask others to retweet.

      * Tape fliers inside women’s restroom stalls.

      * Take the links of the blog articles about it and put them all over facebook.

      * Invite other liberal/progressive groups to march with us via their fb page.

      * Put a sign in your car window “Unite women 4/28”.

      * Other ideas?

      1. with as many friends as my old flivver will carry. Hope to catch up to you there and say hey. Joe and I know each other so I will ask him to point you out.
