Stand with Planned Parenthood Saturday, February 11, 2017 9 - 10 am 2300 W.

And we want Robach to “see pink” and understand he needs to stand up for birth control and comprehensive women’s health care. Please note we will not be gathering at a Planned Parenthood location as to not add to any confusion or chaos while people are accessing their health care.

The bell is the continuous invitation to compassion, justice and relationship, calling on all to love the neighbor out of the acceptance of God's love for us. This event is sponsored by GRCC.
