Sponsored by Seattle Clinic Defense

Last month Seattle Clinic Defense was met with a nasty surprise: Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys, two alt-right “western chauvinist” (i.e.: sexist, racist thugs) groups showed up to intimidate pro-choice activists out of our continued presence to ensure that anti-choice demonstrators can’t harass patients and staff.

Joey Gibson, failed senate candidate and Patriot Prayer leader threatened to turn the scene outside of Planned Parenthood into a “circus” when he confronted clinic defenders last month. We need everyone out to say no to anti-choice intimidation, and we won’t go back to the days of clinic blockades and violence like those conducted by Operation Rescue.

We aim to provide a peaceful, calm, pro-choice presence and the clinic will be open during the time of the defense. Please wear bright pink and bring bold, colorful signs that show that we stand with Planned Parenthood!

**If you have never been to a clinic defense before, please arrive at 7:45 a.m. for clinic defense orientation**
