Tomorrow NARAL will hold a rally for women’s equality at 5 pm outside Boston’s city hall. The MC will be Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley. A multitude of legislators [ Rep. Paul Brodeur, Rep. Marjorie Decker, Rep. Lori Ehrlich, Rep. Patricia Haddad, Rep. David Linsky, Rep. Paul Mark, Rep. Kate Hogan, Sen. Mike Barrett, Rep. Anne Gobi, Sen. Stan Rosenberg, Rep. Jennifer Benson, Sen. William    Brownsberger, Sen. Jason Lewis, Sen. Cynthia Creem, and Rep. Tom Conroy] are supporting the event, as well as organizations [ACLU, Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, Boston Doula Project,
Catholics for Choice, Committee for Interns and Residents,GLAD, Hollaback! Boston,
Jane Doe Inc., Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action (JALSA), MassEquality, MassNOW, Moishe Kavod House, NARAL PCM, Out Now, Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministries, and the Women's Bar Association]. 
All Bostonians are welcome to take part in this discussion about women’s equality, and particularly regarding the two recent Supreme Court cases, Hobby Lobby and Massachusetts buffer laws. These two decisions have successfully eroded decades of work aimed at promoting women’s equality. Allowing protesters and bosses to intervene with women’s access to healthcare is a huge setback in this process. Join us at Boston City Hall tomorrow at 5 and together we can send the message that we will not stand for injustice.
