Spotlight on a Donor

|

eve-blog-bodyEve Peyser is a writer, comedian, and activist. Her work focuses on relationships and the internet. She is currently the night editor at Gizmodo and her bylines include Gawker, New York Magazine, GQ, and Esquire. Eve is also big fan of the Reproductive Health Access Project. She helped organize our Hyde UnHappy Hour in September – recruiting an amazing line up of comedians and emceeing the event with her comedy partner, Melissa Rocha.

“Reproductive health access is one of the biggest issues facing our nation—it’s an issue of women’s rights. The work RHAP does in training doctors in abortion, contraceptive, and miscarriage care is essential; I contribute to and fundraise for RHAP because of the organization’s commitment to protecting abortion rights specifically.”

In October, in the days leading up to the election, Eve challenged her Twitter followers to make a donation to a good cause.

“After I hosted RHAP’s annual benefit, the Hyde Unhappy Hour, I noticed on Twitter that many ‘well-meaning’ liberals were donating money to the NC GOP after their headquarters were bombed. Although I don’t condone political violence, I was floored to see progressives donating their money to an organization that has systematically tried to strip the rights of trans and gender nonconforming people. So I challenged liberals on Twitter to match their NC GOP donations with a donation to RHAP.”

She donated to RHAP and tweeted out our donation page. Many of her Twitter followers followed suit and donated to RHAP.

After the election, Eve put the word out about the Reproductive Health Access Project and helped get us listed on Jezebel’s list of organizations to support. Since the election, we have received more than 150 donations from new supporters!

 Thank you Eve for using your voice to shine a light on reproductive health, rights, and justice, and for spreading the word about the work we do.
