Bigger than Roe Rally, Saturday, January 21, 1pm!

THIS Saturday, January 21, at 1pm, at 6th & Main in Longmont. RSVP, here.

This rally is an energizing reminder: WE ARE HERE.

The women’s wave delivered a blow to anti-freedom politicians in the 2022 midterms across our nation. For the first time, progressives in Longmont sent Congressman Joe Neguse back to the US House, and voted for amazing state legislators who are already hard at work at our Capitol.

On January 21, 2023, the weekend of the anniversary of Roe V Wade, as we mourn the loss of nearly 50 years of constitutional protections, we send another clear message:

We will not take these democratic majorities in Longmont, Boulder County and Colorado for granted. We celebrate electeds doing the work of democracy, but will continue to demand MORE. And we are putting ALL politicians in EVERY state, at every level of government on notice: If you come for our families, our freedoms, or our future, we are coming for your seat. Our movement is strong. Our movement is growing.

So please join us in SOLIDARITY, in support of reproductive and human rights — THIS Saturday, January 21, at 1pm, at 6th & Main in Longmont. Bring friends & make new ones! Share local actions. Bring signs! RSVP here, so we know how many folks will be attending, and so that you can receive updates, thanks! Show Longmont and the world that our democracy — though struggling — is alive, needs to THRIVE, and is MORE than worth fighting for.

Our movement is Bigger than Roe. RSVP, here.

RESOURCE DOCUMENT FOR THE EVENT, here.

You don’t want to miss LADs Next Meeting — Hit the Ground Running: Local Electeds Share 2023 Priorities, Wednesday, January 4, 6:30pm, via zoom.

Where else but LAD, will you find SIX local electeds, gathered to share their vision and strategies for 2023? With daily news of other states, even the extremist faction of our US Supreme Court — suppressing rights and taking our democracy backward — YOU VOTED to maintain our robust democratic majorities here in Boulder County. And by electing and re-electing local district state legislators, they will draft, sponsor and vote forward good statewide laws (not to mention block bad bills), thus protecting democracy in Colorado!

We’re so happy that the following elected leaders will join us:
MARTA LOACHAMIN Boulder County Commissioner
KAREN McCORMICK State Representative HD11
TRACEY BERNETT State Representative HD12
SONYA JAQUEZ LEWIS State Senator SD17
JUNIE JOSEPH State Representative HD10
JENNIFER PARENTI State Representative HD19

Each elected will have time to speak, then we will open it up for a few minutes of questions from attendees. The 2023 Colorado Legislative Session starts on January 9, we’ll provide access to join CLEAN (Community Legislative Early Action Network), and as always, provide updates, announcements and action items.

Please join us…and please tell a friend — for what promises to be an inspiring start to the New Year! Wednesday, January 4, 6:30pm, via zoom. We’ll send the zoom link to the LAD blast list twice on Wednesday, at 9am and 6pm, or send us an email with “Send me the zoom link!” in the subject line to longmontareadems@gmail.com

On December 17, LAD held its Annual Holiday/Business Meeting, where we elected the LAD 2023 Board of Directors, and presented an overview of our year’s budget, and our accomplishments. You can find the resources and slides from that meeting here.
