Hey Seattle Fans!
We are coming to town for an amazing show that is a benefit celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Cedar River Clinics! We know you have a pretty awesome state when it comes to abortion rights, but, we also know you have Matt Shea (we're sorry), and that you're fed up with the OUTRAGEOUS abortion bans being passed across the country. So, are you ready to laugh at all the misogynists making these laws and raise money to keep this amazing clinic open for another 40 years? Don't miss this show!
Abortion Access Front (AAF), is a reproductive rights non-profit founded by Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead. She and AAF are joining the hilarious El Sanchez to support this amazing reproductive heath care provider. Winstead and company use comedy shows as a way to gather folks together for a night of fun, with activism built into the evening! Each performance features a post-show talkback with local abortion providers and activists, plus a booth full of direct action items. Abortion AF: The Tour is a one stop hub for audiences to have a great night out, take action, and get information on how to continue the fight back against the assaults on reproductive rights across America and in your state.
Winstead states, “Being able to create an environment of joy that gives a platform for local activists to raise awareness to our fanbase about how they can combat these oppressive laws is what AAF is all about. Add to that, spending a few days in each town, bringing love and self care to clinic staff and we have a new brand of activism that has given me a whole new way of using my comedy to make change.”
We can’t wait to see you Seattle!
Abortion Access Front (formerly Lady Parts Justice League), the reproductive rights organization founded by comedian Lizz Winstead (co-creator of the Daily Show), announces Abortion AF: The Tour, a comedy and activism roadshow traveling to states hardest hit by abortion restrictions. AAF’s mission will continue that of LPJL: creating edgy, hilarious media and comedy, music and variety shows that destigmatize abortion and engage audiences to take action to fight laws restricting abortion access. The group will also grow their work providing on-the-ground support to independent abortion providers and their communities across the country.
Cedar River Clinics is celebrating its 40th anniversary as a non-profit social justice organization that combines direct services with advocacy and community education. Cedar River Clinics began as the Feminist Women’s Health Center in Yakima, WA in 1979. Cedar River Clinics provide compassionate reproductive health care including abortion, birth control, well-woman care, and LGBTQ wellness services in a Washington State with clinics in Renton, Seattle, and Tacoma. While the majority of their patients are from Washington State, due to restrictive laws, we serve patients from across the country and the world. Throughout its 40 years of service, Cedar River Clinics has been committed to defending reproductive rights and ensuring access to care on state, regional, and national levels. Cedar River Clinics is grateful to Abortion AF for celebrating our anniversary with love and humor!
