Abortion Access Bowl-A-Thon

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 09:00 AM · 13 rsvps
in your local community

DSA's Socialist Feminism Commission is organizing our participation in the National Network of Abortion Funds Bowl-A-Thon fundraisers throughout the month of April. These bowl-a-thons raise money for poor women to access safe abortions.

DSA and YDS chapters are organizing 6-8 person teams, or you can organize your own, or you can join a team in your community as a "free agent" bowler.

Teams pick puntastic names (Bowlsheviks, Red Strikers, Roll v Wade, etc.), set a group fundraising goal and fundraising pages through the national Network, and start spreading the word.

Socialist feminists know that women deserve free abortion on demand, a full range of culturally appropriate reproductive health care and family services and an economic system allowing for full employment and compensation for caregiving of the elderly and young. "Reproductive justice" is a concept that moves beyond the notions of "choice" and "rights." It links the calls for reproductive choice (a woman's right to control her own body) to the broader issues of economic justice and human rights (creating conditions that enable people to have children, not only to not have them). Access to abortion is one small, but critical, part of reproductive justice. 

RSVP and the Socialst Feminist Commission will be in touch with details about how to register or join a DSA or YDS team.

NOTE: April 30th is not the event date - bowl-a-thons happen on different dates in different communities, and we will put you in touch with your local event once you RSVP.
