Bowl-A-Thon Fundraiser Party to help low income women access a safe abortion
Sunday, April 21, 2013
2:30 PM to 4:30 PM
110 University Place, New York, NY
RSVP by March 9th required to get a spot on the team
Socialist feminists know that women deserve free abortion on demand, a full range of 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. The national DSA Socialist Feminist Commission is organizing DSA and YDS participation in these bowl-a-thons with the National Network of Abortion Funds.
DSA is fielding at least one, possibly two, six person teams for this NY fundraising bowling party. SAVE YOURSELF A SPOT BY RSVPING NO LATER THAN MARCH 9TH. Then each team will decide collectively on a good fundraising goal (it will be reasonable) and team name, and register with the NY event organizers.
We also need team name ideas! If you have a good idea, post it in the “comments” section for this event. We came up with these ideas so far:
Power to the Pins
Strike Action (though we’ll need to register that name soon if we want it, since we’ve recruited some union organizer friends and they may steal that name for their team)
