Women’s March of Southwest Virginia
By Organizing Locally, We Win Nationally!
The Peace Pentagon hosts the “WOMEN-2-WOMEN” Circle in Southwest Virginia. W2W Circles are local Women’s March groups that take action at the local level, which are then scaled statewide and nationally. Our circle builds local relationships, resilience, and readiness – an “Army of Activists” – equipped to meet the moment and execute a feminist movement for equity and justice.

In Grayson County, Virginia and beyond …
The Peace Pentagon also is leading the charge to protect Reproductive Rights in our rural county, which is under attack by the Federalist Society and Texas Right to Life. ABORTION IS LEGAL IN VIRGINIA. But local evangelical churches are supporting an Ordinance that would: (i) Declare Grayson County an “Unborn Sanctuary”; (ii) Criminalize the receipt of abortion medication through the mail; and (iii) Penalize (fine and/or jail) anyone who assists in this care.
The proposed Ordinance is a blatant violation of Virginia law. The Virginia Constitution and Virginia Act for Religious Freedom firmly declare that religious extremism has no place in politics. The Ordinance seeks to create confusion regarding reproductive healthcare in Virginia, and it jeopardizes the well-being of county residents, including patients and families seeking critical care.
