Upset that a pro life group was holding a charity event on a local running trail, a skep chicker takes action into her own hands and organized a run for choice.
“The September issue of a local running magazine ran a story promoting an anti-choice 5k happening next month on MY favorite running trail. I wouldn’t have even noticed if the event organizers had only taken out an ad, but the article appeared to endorse the event, and, coming from a journalism background, I was appalled to see it. Being staunchly pro-choice, I was deeply upset at the violation of my sacred (if you will) running space and also at my city’s hosting it.”
It’s in Plano, Texas (I had to use google maps) but we can still help out.
“Even if you’re not in the area, you can run or walk a virtual 5k with the group in solidarity. You can donate to Planned Parenthood, your local women’s health centers, or the Texas Equal Access Fund. If you’re feeling really ambitious, organize a local event with your friends! If you’re local, invite everyone you can think of!”
I’m going to run 5 km in solidarity and make a charitable donation to Planned Parenthood. Join me!
And help spread the word.
