The 9:30 Club in DC is hosting one of the most controversial and beneficial shows of this year. The recent threats to Planned Parenthood has inspired fight and fire in supporters around the world. After Congress’s attempt to refuse legislation to fund Planned Parenthood, men and women have stood in protest of our governments actions.

On January 19th, bands Common, The National, and more are performing for Show Up!. This concert acts as a call to action for support of reproductive rights now and in the future. The gig—a small piece of the All Access concert series—is meant as a way to motivate supporters and create hype enough to change the future.

“We know our movement is stronger when we partner together and we will make our message clear: We will not back down, we will not be silenced, and we will not let attacks on reproductive freedom stand.” said Planned Parenthood President, Cecile Richards.

Hosted by Monica Simpson, a member of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Collective, Show Up! is set to demonstrate to the United States Government exactly what citizens think of their attacks on women’s rights.

For anyone wanting to aid in the fight for a better future in the midwest can do so at events in KC. Some such events are the Trump Inauguration Protest this Friday afternoon, Rock the Twat Friday night, or the Womens March Saturday afternoon.
