From a press release:

“Planned Parenthood supporters, community members and partner organizations will come together in Washington, DC, on Saturday (December 5th) for a National Day of Solidarity to remember the victims of the tragedy in Colorado Springs, to show support for access to safe reproductive health care free from violence, threats and intimidation, and to stand up against violent rhetoric inciting violence in our communities.

The event comes after a tragic shooting last week at a Planned Parenthood health center in Colorado Springs, CO, and a push by Congress, days after unspeakable violence, to double down on their attacks against reproductive health care — fast-tracking a bill that would block patients from services at Planned Parenthood health centers.

Participants and speakers remember the victims in Colorado and San Bernardino, CA, share personal stories and reflections, and unify against the hateful rhetoric that has incited violence against not only Planned Parenthood, but also the black community, immigrants, refugees, and the transgender community.

This event in Washington, DC, is part of a larger National Day of Solidarity, which will also see events in Denver, CO, and across the country. Below are logistics for the DC event for planning purposes:

WHO:       Planned Parenthood supporters, ally organizations, community leaders

WHAT:     National Day of Solidarity

WHEN:     Saturday, December 5, at 10am ET.  Doors open at 9:30 a.m. EST.

WHERE:   All Souls Church Unitarian, 1500 Harvard St. NW”
