New York City – On Saturday, August 11 at 3:00 pm EST, Chelsea Clinton will join Lauren Duca, Symone Sanders, MoveOn’s Karine Jean-Pierre, Jessica Morales Rocketto and Jess Mcintosh to kick off the Rise Up for Roe tour and host an uncensored, no-holds-barred live show to call out the threat to the constitutional right to safe, legal abortion that Kavanaugh’s nomination poses to women across the country.
The free live show is the first event of the 10-city, 14-day “Rise Up for Roe” national tour to rally women and allies and detail exactly what is at stake with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, who would gut Roe v. Wade and criminalize abortion, to the Supreme Court.
