BLACK WOMEN LEADERS OF THE GEORGIA NAACP HOST REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS RALLY

Atlanta - Black women leaders of the Georgia NAACP join to lead a statewide march from Cosmopolitan AME Church to the Georgia State Capital. On Wednesday, a Federal Court of Appeals allowed Georgia's restrictive abortion law to take effect immediately. Most abortion occur once a doctor can detect fetal cardiac activity or six weeks into pregnancy. Black women will be disproportionately effected by the new Restrictive law.

"This moment in history may seem bleak right now, but I want to encourage every woman, especially Black women to remember this moment. Hold on to this moment and unleash your anger at the polls,” said President Griggs.

"As the oldest civil rights organization, we are appalled at the decision of the Federal Court for allowing women's rights to be threatened in Georgia. There is no middle ground on the issue of women's rights. This State has chosen to stand against women, and no one will feel the impact of that burden more than Black women.

We are prepared to do everything within our power to protect the reproductive rights of Black women. This moment in history may seem bleak, but I want to encourage every woman, especially Black women, to remember this moment. Hold on to this moment and unleash your anger at the polls. It's to show this State that your voices and your votes truly do matter. We are prepared to #DoSomething."
