One month until the Billiards-a-Thon!

BATcollageIn just one month, we’ll be celebrating our sixth annual Billiards-a-Thon! Like other abortion funds around the country, we gear up every spring to hustle for money. It’s important for many reasons: It raises a quarter of our annual budget for patients, for one thing. But it’s also a gathering, a reminder why the work we do matters.

This year, we want to raise $55,000 for patients who call the DC Abortion Fund for financial assistance. It’s more than we’ve ever raised before. But we know with your help, we can reach that goal. Please join us, and then come celebrate reaching that goal on Sunday, April 26!

How often do you get to hang out with a room full of other pro-choice advocates? How often do you take a day to celebrate all the effort you’ve put into making choice a reality?  How often does a brunch beer help an abortion patient get care? Just once a year, friends: during the Billiards-a-Thon.

You still have plenty of time to sign up, join a team, or start your own. So get after it! Every little bit helps, and it all leads to a great afternoon with friends. We’re counting on you – and so are the patients we help.

This is a great opportunity for D.C. residents to speak out on the importance of expanding abortion access. Congressional restrictions on abortion care directly hurt our community.

Many DCAF callers have Medicaid insurance, which won’t cover their procedures, so our clients must suddenly scrape together several hundred dollars out-of-pocket to obtain the care they need.  All people deserve comprehensive health insurance that includes abortion coverage.

Until that happens, DCAF will do what Congress won’t – help people find the resources to manage their lives and health with dignity and compassion.
