Who are we?

We are a 100% pro-choice grassroots volunteer community focused on reproductive healthcare and abortion rights. Our strike group was created in the wake of the unconstitutional Texas abortion ban that came into effect on September 1st, 2021, and is inclusive for all who want to build a more equitable world from the ground up.

What do we stand for?

The Without Us community believes that abortion is essential healthcare and a basic human right, a right which should be affordable and accessible to all persons with a uterus, bereft of the religious, political, or personal beliefs of others. We believe that the real power lies within the people, and that true change occurs in local communities before it takes on a national following.

Why the red lightning bolt?

Our red lightning bolt imagery is based off the one used in Polish protests that followed a near-total ban on abortion. The original image was created by graphic designer Ola Jasionowska in 2016 and became a main symbol of the pro-choice movement in Poland. The meaning behind it was to convey both the power of the people and act as a warning to the government.

Our Goals

Why is community leadership and engagement so vital?

  1. Community engagement enables better understanding of individual needs and aspirations. Meaningful, inclusive community engagement is critical to everyone’s well-being.
  2. All communities are different. The best people to represent the needs of your community are the people within it.
  3. Engaged communities are impactful communities. Communities that have better communication, representation, and activity in local and state politics will undoubtedly inspire community action.
  4. Political engagement has become a game for the well off or well connected, which has removed our voice from the table. By helping everyday people use their voices, we are reintegrating ourselves into the political sphere. By securing voter rights and protections, we are reinstating our communities as the people in power!
