Description

Join WHARR, Lady Parts Justice League, and Generation Women during the All Above All Bold the Future Week of Action as we grow the campaign to #ExposeFakeClinics!

The event will feature storytellers, comedians (see full lineup below!), and lots of fun ways for YOU to take action to support reproductive rights and access to abortion. Proceeds from the evening will go to support #ExposeFakeClinics, a national campaign to call out fake, anti-choice "clinics" that deceive women seeking information about their reproductive health care options. Learn more about the campaign here!
