About the event
Those of us who served in Iraq and Afghanistan know first hand that we weren’t fighting to protect the citizens of those countries. We know that our lives meant little to the politicians making these decisions, resulting in the deaths of thousands of service members and millions of civilians. This attack on a woman's right to choose and the bodily autonomy of all Americans dis-empowers those service members who served to protect the rights and liberties we all enjoy. Do not allow the supreme court to make second class citizens of your service members.
Since the leaked SCOTUS draft opinion that would completely dismantle Roe v Wade and the right to privacy, we at Continue To Serve have been looking for actions we can take to make a difference. As veterans, this is just one more example of how our country is completely destroying the freedom and democracy we are so often thanked for defending. But what were we defending? Join us June 4th to hear from service members looking to speak out on this issue.
