Announcing our next big event! Along with Shout Your Abortion and Abortion Care Network, we’re hosting an urgent fundraiser to help Independent Abortion Providers continue to provide care.
Did you know that 3 out of 5 patients who get abortions, do so at independent clinics? And during this pandemic, the average independent clinic will need $50,000 per month or else their doors may close permanently.
That’s where we come in!
Lizz Winstead and Shout Your Abortion Co-Founder Amelia Bonow will host this star-studded online fundraiser. The entire event will be streamed live from the Abortion Access Front Instagram account (IG: @AbortionFront)
From the confines of their quarantine, celebrities such as Elizabeth Banks and Sandra Bernhard, comedians Nikki Glaser and Jenny Slate, and musicians Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls) and Kristin Hersh will be coming together with dozens of amazing performers to rally their fans and followers to help independent abortion providers keep their doors open. Through performance, storytelling, interviews and auctioning off handmade crafts and experiences, these passionate artists will be raising urgent funds to help keep these essential clinics running so patients can continue to receive the care they need during the pandemic, and beyond.
WHERE THE FUNDS GO: 100% of the proceeds from Operation Save Abortion go directly to keepourclinics.org, a clinic relief fund set up by Abortion Care Network (ACN), the national association for independent abortion care providers. Abortion care providers are struggling with the increased costs related to the pandemic such as: payroll for staff, purchasing needed supplies, telemedicine technology costs and paying rent. Funds will be distributed to members of ACN’s independent clinic network to protect abortion access throughout the United States during this pandemic and beyond.
