The protest was led by an organization called “Socialist Alternative Pittsburgh,” who says today’s discussion is focused on building social feminist policies.

The group demanded to defend and extend Roe to ensure free, safe and legal abortions.

The organization is also looking for universal childcare and expanded paid parental leave; living wages for everyone at $25 dollars an hour; comprehensive, consent-informed sex education in schools; and to resist anti-gay and anti-trans bills.
