TONIGHT: Join the New York Abortion Access Fund as we Celebrate Abortion Access For All!

As many of you know I am proud to be a board member of the New York
Abortion Access Fund (NYAAF).

NYAAF supports anyone who is unable to pay fully for an abortion and
is living in or traveling to New York State by providing financial
assistance and connections to other resources.

This evening is our 2nd Annual Celebrate Access Awards where we will
honor local champions of abortion access.

Tonight we are honoring the fabulous Irin Carmon for journalism
shedding light on attacks on abortion access; Council Member Jessica
Lappin for introducing legislation to protect abortion access and
abortion providers in New York City and Jasmine Burnett for her
leadership in reproductive justice activism.

Author and activist Jennifer Baumgardner will MC the evening.

There will be a live silent auction at the event with prizes including
a private yoga session, lunch with Katha Pollitt, a weekend at a
Montreal vacation home and a portrait session with a professional

Delicious food from Sahadi's will be served. Delicious dessert from a
local bakery will also be served, and delicious wine will be served!

Last year's party was incredibly moving, uplifting and fun and this
years party I believe will be even better!

You can purchase tickets here:

Should you have any questions or need any further information please
don't hesitate to contact me!
Have a wonderful day!
