I’m raising money for abortion access!
Alright y’all, I’ve recently decided to dedicate to raising money for abortion access! I’m going to be participating in a bowl-a-thon, and the goal of the team is to raise $500, but each individual on the team’s goal is to raise $100 by 4/23. I’m going to be making some patches, little canvases, homemade cloth mynstrual pads, and other fun things of the like. If anyone who is a long distance follower would be interested in donating, I will send you a little package of goodies for participating, depending on how much you donate and what you’re into! Richmonders, I’m also interesting in doing reasonable exchanges for donations. I may not be able to give a whole lot to everyone, but I’d love to give a little back to people who are dedicated and interested in helping to make abortion accessible! You all know how absolutely critical this is, and you can find some more information here:
I really appreciate any and all donations, you can click the link above and donate directly to me and my team. Please let me know if you’ve donated and are interested in a patch, pad, or goody bag! Thanks for mobilizing!

Reproductive Rights Community Conversation
This is an extremely important event. Doors open at noon, discussion begins at 12:30pm. Don’t miss this, it’s vital. There’s still work to be done, and that work can’t happen reliably without everyone having a chance to express their needs and hopes. This kind of strategising is what allows us to win a better world.

7:30am silent protest outside of the Virginia Board of Health, as they vote on the proposed Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers (TRAP). For those West of downtown near VCU, carpooling is available at the corner of Main St and Laurel, across the street from the Landmark theater, 7am.
These regulations are politically motivated attempts to restrict abortion access in Virginia- if they pass, anti-abortion groups won’t have to challenge Roe V. Wade in court, because they’ll have effectively made abortion unavailable without making it illegal. As of now, 17 of Virginia’s 21 abortion clinics (which also provide vital services like cancer screening and birth control to underserved people) will shut down if these regulations pass. Virginia will have the worst reproductive care access in the entire country.
This is incredibly important.
