The All* Above All Be Bold Road Trip has blazed a trail across the country, celebrating the work reproductive health, rights, and justice movements are doing to protect abortion access while building momentum for the hard-fought wins ahead, such as eliminating Medicaid restrictions on abortion access under the Hyde Amendment.
The road trip started in Los Angeles on August 9 and has traveled 10,000 miles across 12 cities and eight states with a mission to elevate the effects that restrictions on abortion access and affordability have had on families across the country.
The tour stopped in Philadelphia on September 9 at Love Park; I was the Women’s Medical Fund community organizer for the event. I know the location to be a symbol of great pride to the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection. However, as low-income families and women in the city have experienced, the motto certainly isn’t a reflection of the city’s stewardship to communities in need.
