CALL FOR ART
Please consider making a donation of 2D art to this important cause, info to donate here
Nasty Women Evanston is an annual art fundraiser dedicated to raising funds for reproductive rights.
The main reason for Planned Parenthood as the beneficiary is that they are opening more clinics on the border of Illinois’ surrounding states that either already had trigger laws in effect (MO) or are attempting to have more restrictive laws in effect soon (WI, IN).
This will provide better and safer access to people who need to travel for safe and legal care.
Not only that, the reversal has made other reproductive health care options put into peril, such as care after miscarriage (not just D&C during miscarriage but other medical needs), necessary prescriptions being targeted, and more.
Additionally, PP serves significant numbers of humans who are poverty-stricken, disenfranchised, marginalized, trans, non-binary, or otherwise wouldn’t feel safe going to a doctor in a different network for any reproductive care.
Please also consider donating to Chicago Abortion Fund, The Trevor Project, Elevated Access, Onward Together, or any other org that you want to support. It’s important right now to do as much as we can, together.
Evanstonians for Reproductive Rights
