Your Body, Your Choice: A Fundraising Art Show

This fundraiser is an urgent call to action to fight back against the unconstitutional abortion bans impacting access to safe reproductive healthcare in several southern states.

Several local artists (and a tarot reader!!) will be sharing their work, and donating between 30-50% of art sales to Women Have Options & Access Reproductive Care – Southeast to stand in solidarity with those affected by anti-abortion bills.

A raffle including work from each of our featured artists will also be up for grabs, and 100% of the profits put towards this will be donated. There will be food and drinks (plenty of vegan options!), tarot readings, and artwork in this safe space. Let’s come together to take a stand and open up the conversation.
