This week, Gabe was joined by Claressa and Michelle from Feminist Flag Corps! Find them on Twitter and Facebook. You can also read more about them on Columbus Underground.

Over the past year, they’ve worked to raise funds to pay for women’s abortion by creating a unique design for flags. Taking inspiration from the Gadsdsen Flag that many conservatives have co-opted, Claressa combined a snake and uterus to send a clear message: Don’t Tread On Me. Proceeds from sales of the flags go to Women Have Options — Ohio, one of Ohio’s most active abortion funds.

In addition to the flag project, they have been active outside Columbus abortion clinics working as escorts and monitoring protesters. They were in attendance at the Columbus March for Women last Saturday, and will be attending the national march in Washington DC this weekend.

You can catch up with NARAL and our partners at an event in Ohio this Winter.

Please note: Many of these events are sponsored by different organizations. As such, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio is not able to answer questions on them all. Please click the link on each event for complete-ish details.
