(NEW YORK) Local politicians in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan will gather for an abortion-rights rally at Bennett Park on Thursday.

The rally will begin at 6:30 p.m. at West 183 Street and Fort Washington Avenue.

Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine will be joined by Congressman Adriano Espaillat, council members Carmen De La Rosa, Shaun Abreu and assembly member Manny De Los Santos.

The rally serves as a response to the leaked draft from the United States Supreme Court regarding Roe v. Wade that made rounds earlier this week.
