SAFERchoice.org SAFER's Blog Donate to SAFER Help the Cause

Tomorrow, women throughout California and across the nation will speak out in support of Proposition 19, the California ballot initiative to control and tax marijuana similarly to alcohol. Women in cities across the nation will also be participating to show their support for marijuana legalization and announce efforts to begin organizing women in their areas.

You can help make this nationwide effort a huge success by attending the event nearest you.  Scroll down to see the complete list of WMM Day Of Action event locations and times.

This effort is being coordinated by the Women’s Marijuana Movement, a project of SAFER intended to increase support for marijuana legalization among women.  If you have not already signed on to be a part of the movement you can do so today by visiting http://www.WomensMarijuanaMovement.org today.
