Tomorrow night in Asheville we’re getting together to talk about what our world will be like after the Senate confirms Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. No doubt you’ve talked about this in your living room, grocery line, or doctor’s office. But it’s time to bring this conversation out of the shadows.

We hope you will join lawmakers, advocates, and your friends for the #SaveRoe Town Hall at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow. Here’s a few details for you:

WHAT: #SaveRoe Town Hall

WHEN: 6:30pm

WHERE: Pack Memorial Library, Haywood Street

WHY: Because when Kavanaugh takes over all bets are off

WHO: Progress NC, Planned Parenthood South Atlantic, NOW NC, the Justice Center, Action NC, Working America, NARAL NC, NC Council of Churches, Asheville-area lawmakers and YOU


The event will be about an hour and will include a robust Q&A period during which you can probe our experts’ minds for how to protect YOUR reproductive rights in this upcoming era. I know you’re busy, but trust us, you won’t want to miss this.

    Seems kind of early to be holding a town hall about an issue that isn’t even on the table.
