South Queens Women’s March rallies for health care and reproductive rights

As thousands of demonstrators across the country held rallies on Saturday, Oct. 2 for women’s reproductive rights, a Queens organization held its first justice rally at Springfield Gardens speaking out against the Texas abortion law, which bans most abortions in the state.

South Queens Women’s March (SQWM), an all-volunteer multi-generational, intersectional platform working to foster women’s empowerment, rallied at Brookville Park near Brookville Boulevard and 147th Avenue with local elected officials, reproductive rights advocates, local activists and SQWM members.
