Donald Trump has long promised to only nominate a justice who will end Roe v. Wade criminalize abortion, and punish women. Trump has found his man in Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh would rule against reproductive freedom, health care, the environment, voting rights, workers’ rights, LGBTQ rights, and immigrant rights for generations. We know what’s at stake in this fight: our most precious and fundamental rights.

The program in San Francisco will be emceed by Andrea Shorter, Commissioner on San Francisco’s Commission on the Status of Women, and include powerful music by Lapel, Aish, and Emma’s Revolution. Confirmed speakers include: Congresswoman Barbara Lee; NARAL Pro-Choice California State Director Amy Everitt; State Senator Scott Wiener; Assemblymember David Chiu; Reverend Yolanda Norton; LGBT Rights Activist Rebecca Prozan; Ambassador Eleni Kounalakis, Candidate for Lt.
