Ways for Faith Communities to Participate in Solidarity Events with Planned Parenthood and Other Allies
#1 Participate in the National Day of Solidarity on Saturday, December 5, 2015
One of the lessons of the tragedy in Colorado is that words matter, and hateful rhetoric fuels violence. We are calling for an end to the inflammatory rhetoric that has vilified and fueled attacks not only against Planned Parenthood and abortion providers, but also against black lives, immigrants, refugees, and transgender people. On the National Day of Solidarity, we stand united against violence. We stand together against attacks in our communities. And we #StandWithPP.

#2 Submit a National Day of Action Solidarity Video
Whether or not you can attend an in-person event, you can make a video! In 10 to 15 seconds, tell the world why you are standing with Planned Parenthood during the National Day of Solidarity. This is an opportunity to show support for access to safe reproductive health care and against all forms of violence. Upload your video directly to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter using the hashtag #Solidarity and/or #StandWithPP. You can also send your video to Amber Phillips at Amber.Phillips@ppfa.org. The deadline is midnight on Saturday! Consider using the following prompts:
- What does solidarity look like to you?
- Why do you stand with Planned Parenthood and in solidarity against all violence?
- How and who do you stand in solidarity with?
Example: “I stand with Planned Parenthood, I believe that Black lives matter, and that all people have the right to live free from oppression and political violence.”
