LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Supporters of abortion rights are set to rally at the Nebraska Capitol as part of a national campaign responding to states that have passed new abortion restrictions.

The free public event is set for noon Tuesday at the Nebraska Capitol and will include representatives of the American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska and Planned Parenthood as well as state lawmakers. It’s sponsored by those groups and the Women’s Fund of Omaha.

The rally will take place beneath the Nebraska Capitol rotunda on the building’s second floor if it rains.

Organizers ask that participants be respectful and observe the Capitol’s rules for such events. Participants aren’t allowed to block entrances to the building, and signs must be handheld and are not allowed inside the Capitol.
