Defend Roe, Defend Democracy - at the Overpass

Friday, Oct 7, 2022 from 3:30pm to 5:30pm

The Supreme Court decision to reverse Roe v. Wade was vastly out of touch with the American people. At the same time, GOP right wing extremists continue to push voter suppression, white supremacy, climate-change denial, educational rollbacks, union busting, attacks on Social Security, and crass economic inequity. It's a five-alarm fire.

To defeat these attacks and defend democracy, we must spread the word, and mobilize voters to "Vote Blue" in November. Scheduled "overpass" actions" at Gorman Road will display clear messages to vehicles below on I-95:

  • DEFEND DEMOCRACY
  • DEFEND ROE
  • VOTE BLUE IN 2022!

We can reach 12,000+ voter/drivers per hour with our large banners and accompanying volunteers. The cars, trucks, and buses passing below are not only from Maryland, but also from DC, VA, NJ, NY, PA, DE, and beyond.

While the local overpass activities at Gorman Road have occurred off-and-on since 2016 and were mainly the projects of IndivisibleHoCoMD and Our Revolution HoCo, this new effort is receiving broader support, starting with the Columbia Democratic Club, Sunrise Movement of Howard County, leaders from the county's Democratic Central Committee, and individual candidates for office in November.

Stand with us on Friday afternoons at the overpass! United, we can give the public a powerful message of how much we know is at stake!

[Note: If it rains in the afternoon, we automatically cancel that particular Friday's activity.]
