Sponsored by Seattle Clinic Defense

“40 Days for Life” is upon us so we can expect an increased number of anti-choicers and harassers outside of clinics across the country. Therefore, it is more important than ever to show up as clinic defenders, with supportive smiles for patients and workers. Our goal is to take back the political space that they have staked out and let them know that their behavior is unacceptable.

***We will be having an orientation to clinic defense at 8:45 and starting our defense at 9:00***
If you have never been to a clinic defense, please plan to come at 8:45. We will meet across the street from the clinic. (Sometimes people cluster on the side of the street that the clinic is on– generally look for pink items of clothing and pro-choice signs)

Please note: this Planned Parenthood will be open during this defense, so our tactics in blocking the anti-choicers will be centered on ensuring that we are creating a supportive presence for patients. We ask that if you have not done a clinic defense before, please arrive 15 min early for training on deescalation tactics.
