Centering Those Most Impacted After the Fall of Roe: Avow Texas

In response to the fall of Roe, Rapid Response Fund grantee Avow Texas and the Repro Power Dallas Coalition combined advocacy with the collective need for community healing to coordinate an Abortion Liberation rally outside Dallas City Hall. The rally centered on the voices of abortion storytellers whose intersecting identities around immigration status, race, gender, and age emphasized the fact that the weight of abortion restrictions does not fall evenly across all Texans.

In May 2022, Avow Texas developed a comprehensive survey and inventory of the national legal resources available to create a legal support network for Texans facing civil or criminal liability due to abortion bans. Avow Texas continues to center abortion resources for Black, Indigenous, people of color, disabled, trans people, minors, and low-income communities who have been the most impacted.
