“Democrat” Congressman Dan Lipinski, along with 200+ of his Repubican colleagues signed a legal brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold a Louisiana law that basically calls for the overturning of Roe v. Wade, June Medical Services v. Gee. On March 4, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case and the outcome is expected to have profound effects on the future of abortion rights across the country.
On 3/4/2020, we want to kick-off a week of actions targeting Lipinski for his prehistoric position on reproductive rights and progressive policies. We will start with an action at his Archer Ave (This may change if we think another office has better traffic.), that we are calling “Read Him To Filth.” Volunteers will read selected excerpts from the selections below while Handmaids stand vigil:
The Handmaid’s Tale
Roe V Wade decision
The amicus brief
We will follow up the protest by encouraging constituents all week, to tweet/post on social media and tag Lipinski and mail postcards to him with selected quotes. Volunteers can sign-up here: Signup: https://forms.gle/9HqG2HWFQBh6z4oZ8
