Chattanooga Health Advocacy Team will host “Spring for Roe” on Saturday. A month before SCOTUS is likely to rule on a case on sexual health and reproductive freedom, participants will join together for a Bans Off Our Bodies Day of Action to send a message that "abortion care is health care."
“Many members of our community know little to nothing about this case out of Mississippi,” said Shannon Hardaway, founding member of CHAT, “or the fact that a decision in favor of Dobbs would challenge a woman’s right to a safe, legal abortion that has been protected since 1973.”
"Spring for Roe" will include comedians and flower crowns. Ms. Hardaway said, “While we don't want this event to be a sad affair, we do want our community to know we are very close to living in a post-Roe world. And with the leak of Justice Alito’s draft decision on the case, we need the help and support of those who believe in a woman’s right to choose.”
The event will be held at Moxy Chattanooga, 1220 King St., from 7-9 p.m. The event is free but there is a suggested donation of $5-$25. Food and drinks will be available from Moxy and food trucks.
