COME OUT THIS SATURDAY TO SUPPORT WOMEN’S REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE! OUR UULMNJ TASK FORCE CHAIR, REV. KATHLEEN GREEN, HAS CALLED US TO ACTION. PLEASE COME OUT.
You are invited to participate:
Religious Liberty Demonstration Sat., July 12th
For the purpose of drawing attention to the injustice that allows employers to privilege their own religious beliefs over those of their employees, and to show support of such employees.
In front of the newly opened Hobby Lobby at 465 US Hwy 46 in Totowa, NJ from 1-3pm .
While we are frustrated, angry, and deeply concerned about the outrageous ruling handed down by our nation’s highest court on June 30th, this demonstration will be peaceful and civil. We will gather as Americans of differing religious backgrounds, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and abilities, who value the right of religious liberty for human beings and not corporations. We will hand out condoms that are donated for this event and all are welcome to bring signs that show support of employees and their right to the contraception of their choice. Other sign ideas are Ginsburg quotes: “The court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield” “The cost of an IUD is nearly a month’s pay for min. wage workers” and other general talking points such as “Corporations do not exercise religious beliefs” “My body. My business.” “My right to religious freedom has been taken away and given to corporations”.
We know there’s strength in numbers so let’s do this together!
