A small but spirited group of protesters, mobilized by Women Organized to Resist and Defend, picketed at the site of future Hobby Lobby in North Seattle on busy Aurora Avenue (Highway 99). Holding a banner condemning the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decisions and signs stating “Contraception is healthcare,” the protest was greeted with honks of support from many passing cars.

Annette had searched online to find a protest. She hadn’t attended any demonstrations in years, but the Supreme Court’s decision had outraged her and she felt compelled to take action.

A man in a wheelchair across the street called out, “I am a Christian and I am against what they [Hobby Lobby] are doing.”

A young woman took a handful of fliers to distribute at Aurora Commons, a resource center a few blocks away.
