To celebrate our 10 year anniversary the Reproductive Health Access Project is hosting V to Shining V – a night of great music, comedy, and activism on Saturday, September 26, 2015. The event will take place at Le Poisson Rouge. VIP reception will take place from 6:00pm-7:00pm. Doors open for general ticket holders at 6:30pm.
V To Shining V is an annual celebration of reproductive rights started by Lady Parts Justice in 2014. We are thrilled to be partnering with Lady Parts Justice for this year’s New York City event.
Lady Parts Justice is a “rapid response reproductive justice messaging hub that uses comedy, culture, and digital media to sound an alarm” about reproductive rights and was founded in 2012 by Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead.
V To Shining V events use party games, hilarious videos, music, comedians and unapologetic straight-talk as ways for people to see how fighting for reproductive justice can be incorporated into our social lives. By building strong and supportive activist communities and integrating that into our social lives, we can ensure that we’re paying attention and become a movement that is proactive instead of reactive.
The evening will highlight the work of RHAP clinicians integrating abortion, contraception, and miscarriage into primary care across the country.
All proceeds go to supporting RHAP’s work.
