All out for Abortion Access: an Open Mic night
July 31, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join NYC for Abortion Rights for an open mic night at Starr Bar!
20 week bans have been passed in 19 states
7 states have only one abortion clinic left
20.2 million women are in need of publicly funded family planning, yet Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of these services is under the constant threat of being defunded
In the tradition of the Redstockings, we will gather to speak-out against the real threats that these attacks on reprdcutive health access pose to our bodies and our lives.
We’ll kick off the event with an update on Kentucky’s one remaining clinic. Then we’ll open it up to hear from you! Come share your own reproductive health stories, give a reportback on a newspiece you’ve read recently, sing a song, reahearse a poem– Whatever it is, we want to hear from you!
If you don’t feel like being on stage– come grab a burger, beer, and cheers to abortion access.
Check out the menu here: http://starrbar.com/menu/
$5 suggested donation– all proceeds go to Kentucky Health Justice Network support fund which helps people in KY pay for their abortions and gain other forms of access (transportation, translation, and more).
