Organizing for abortion rights

Abortion Access Front's Operation Save Abortion training day

"As someone who has worked in the abortion access movement for over 20 years, I just want folks to know that there are already many organizations ON THE GROUND who are working to ensure that people who need abortion care can get it no matter what. Abortion funds, practical support organizations, and grassroots advocacy organizations know what needs to happen as the fight moves to the states. We don't need to re-create systems that already exist... here's just a few of the places you can direct your help, time and support ..."

Also, in Metatalk: Abortion Rights are Under Attack! What do we do? Fight Back!

August is MetaFilter fundraising month!
Hey, folks, it's time for a fundraising push! MetaFilter depends primarily on member and reader funding to operate, and that's even more true over time as advertising revenue continues to decline. Your new and increased subscriptions and one-time contributions are what will make it possible for us to continue to operate as the actively moderated community website we've been for the last 22 years and counting.

We're in the middle of September fundraising for Mefi, and cortex is still half-hippy, so vote with your $ because those scissors are not going to pay for themselves! Jessamyn is making sponsored posts every day this month (acquire your very own excellent certified Jess post right here), plus we're auctioning precious Mefi Blue chatfilter posts (#1, #2; see the current slate of chatfilter topics suggested, vote, and add your own topic ideas to the main thread), and we're still dreaming, so make any post on the blue about dreams or dreaming and tag it #dreamweek to add to the fun.
