GetEQUAL TX was among the organizers of the Texans Unified for Change rally outside Dallas City Hall on Wednesday night.
About 50 people gathered to protest the anti-abortion bill working its way through the special session of the Legislature.
Activist Cd Kirven carried a wire hanger to symbolize women having to resort to dangerous methods of abortion.
Speakers included Texas Stonewall Democratic Caucus co-chair Erin Moore and Dallas Gay and Lesbian Alliance President Patti Fink.
Moore, wearing pink Wendy Davis sneakers, encouraged the crowd to become more involved in politics to help get more people like Davis in office and those who oppose women’s rights out of office.
“It’s easy for men to write a bill to attack women’s rights,” Fink said.
