GREEN BAY - The Green Bay community will turn out on Sunday May 22 in support of maintaining and expanding access to abortion in Wisconsin. The March for Roe is expected to be the largest protest in the city’s history.

Volunteer organizer Adrianna Pokela said “This march is particularly important for Northeast Wisconsin because of our geography. Since we are 3 hours from the Illinois border and 4 hours from the Minnesota border, we face increased challenges to access abortion services.”

The event will include a march through downtown Green Bay and a rally at Leicht Park.
