Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

“Access to health care without fear and intimidation is every person’s right. We must be able to control our own bodies—which has a direct impact on economic justice and the ability of working people to make a better life for themselves and their families. This leaked draft foreshadows an unstable future for the fundamental rights of Americans.”
