“The Reproductive Health Access Project presents V to Shining V” 10 year-anniversary celebration was a huge success! We are so happy to have had the opportunity celebrate with so many of you and we want to thank you all for your tremendous support of the Reproductive Health Access Project over the past decade.
We would like to give a big shout out to our friends at Lady Parts Justice League for pulling together an amazing line up of performers and infusing the evening with big-hearted feminist activism. We invite you to get to know them and support their efforts to raise awareness about reproductive justice.
Buzz Off, Lucille joined us for the second year as our V to Shining V MC’s, and as usual, they kept the crowd laughing and energized throughout the night. Leah Bonnema opened the show with an amazing stand-up performance and was followed by a fantastic musical performance by Ted Leo. Sorry About Last Night hosted a very informative live interview with our Medical Director, Dr. Linda Prine where she discussed the challenges abortion providers face, and even answered questions from the audience.
The Hilarious duo, Betsy Kenney and Alise Morales, hosted a fantastic raffle and several lucky attendees won prizes ranging from a peanut butter pack to a vasectomy. Our organizational leadership and medical fellows were also incredibly honored to have the opportunity to talk so many of our supporters about how important the work that RHAP does is to them and how important your support is to our organization.
The second act was equally amazing with a stand-up performance by the hilarious Naomi Ekerperign. Janeane Gorafalo was a treat to see live in action and the show closed with a killer performance by Lea DeLaria – she even included a sing along! It was so wonderful to hear all our amazing supporters singing and celebrating the Reproductive Health Access Project. It was a truly inspiring night! Check out pictures and video clips from the event.
