Tucson Women’s March is organizing two Tucson demonstrations in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade earlier today, according to the group’s Instagram

Both demonstrations will occur at 7 p.m. and take place regardless of weather conditions. 

The first gathering will be in Downtown Tucson at 405 W. Congress St. and will consist of statements followed by demonstrations. The group is suggesting protesters use the Sunlink to travel to the area. 

The second gathering will be along Broadway Boulevard between Alvernon Way and Randolph Way, and the group suggests parking at Reid Park. 

“We are providing space for all our responses to injustice, and we will do our best to make sure everyone stays safe and hydrated,” said the Instagram post earlier today. 

Tucson Women’s March called for trained medics, safety team members and water and Gatorade donations for the demonstrations at both locations.
