The Connecticut Coalition for Choice will hold a rally Wednesday, Jan. 18, outside the state Capitol in Hartford.
The coalition, which includes Planned Parenthood and similar organizations, will voice their opposition to restrictions on reproductive health, rights, and access.
While the threat to women’s healthcare and promises to defund Planned Parenthood are coming mostly from Washington, the coalition said it’s important to have their voices heard locally. The rally will kick off around 4:30 p.m. on the north side of the Capitol facing Bushnell Park.
On Jan. 21, women from across the country are expected to rally on the National Mall in Washington.
“The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world, that women’s rights are human rights,” the website says. “We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.”
