The Washington Area Clinic Defense Task Force is an all-volunteer, non-violent group founded in the 1980s to promote peaceful and safe access to women's hea lth clinics in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

WHAT does WACDTF do?
We provide escorts to ensure a peaceful and reassuring presence for patients, their companions, and staff, at several local clinics.

WHY is WACDTF necessary?
Because many anti-Choice protesters still try to intimidate or harass anyone who provides or uses services at reproductive health clinics. WACDTF helps counter these protesters' acts of harassment, picketing, and vandalism at clinics so that they remain open and accessible for all women. We escort at the invitation of clinic owners and in cooperation with local law enforcement.

Become a WACDTF volunteer escort. Join us at our next NEW VOLUNTEER TRAINING. Please check our website, for the next training date!
