We’re about an hour into the rally and I can say in all honesty that I am incredibly proud of the support that Oklahoma City is showing. People have come out to spend their lunch break, afternoon, free time; to support us in our message that women are free and that the government cannot control their bodies.
In my time here (and I was even a little bit late, shhh) the crowd has doubled in size. We are spilling out of the plaza.
Several of the speakers have made the point already, and I just want to reiterate. While this rally is important; the more important thing is to get out and vote. Run for the legislature, our freedom is important and we are the ones who will fight the hardest to protect. Write your representatives and let them know how you feel.
This message is important, but no one will hear it if we don’t speak up.
– Edit –
Senator Jim Wilson came and spoke. He wasn’t on the agenda; he heard about us, saw us gathering, and heard us. This is case in point of the above. We just need to make sure that we get our voices out. We will be heard, and we will change these offensive policies coming up in the Oklahoma legislature.
