Scope and content
The Rally for Reproductive Rights on May 7th, 2022, was organized by Democratic Socialists of America, Tacoma and Serve the People Tacoma, outside the Union Station building on Pacific Avenue in Tacoma, Washington. This event was organized following the May 2nd leak of a first draft of written opinion by Justice Samuel Alito that suggested an upcoming overturning of the 1973 ruling on Roe v. Wade, which secured federal abortion rights on the grounds of privacy. Approximately two hundred people gathered on the sidewalk around 12pm to hold signs, chant, and listen to several pro-abortion speakers, including founder of La Resistencia, Maru Mora Villalpando. Community Archives Center staff photographed a handful of protestors, and asked about their motives and reasons for coming to the rally.
