Looking for a way to get involved with DCAF? Want to meet and hang out with other pro-choice advocates? You are invited to join DCAF for these upcoming events!
Join us for a screening of Vessel, a compelling documentary about Women on Waves, a reproductive rights group that sails internationally to provide abortion services aboard a ship to women living in countries with anti-abortion laws. The event will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 24 at the Angelika Theater, located one block from Union Market and accessible by Metro at NoMa/Gallaudet station. Begin the night by meeting the DCAF board and fellow pro-choice supporters in the Angelika lounge area at 6:30 p.m., followed by the screening at 7:15 p.m. Visit this link to buy your $15 ticket ahead of time. You may also purchase tickets at the door for $20 suggested cash donation. We hope you will join us for this fun and informative event!
DCAF will also be at the Women’s Information Network’s Young Women of Achievement Awards on Thursday, Feb. 26. WIN holds these awards annually in order to celebrate young women leaders who are making a difference in the community. The night will consist of a networking reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by the awards ceremony at 7:30 p.m. It will be located at the Carnegie Institution for Science and tickets can be purchased for $30 here. Come out to celebrate the great achievements that have been made and to meet other pro-choice ladies!
Last but certainly not least, join us for an afternoon of fun and fundraising at DCAF’s annual Billiards-a-Thon! This is DCAF’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and this year, the stakes are high. Our goal of $55,000 is our highest ever, so we need your help! Your donations will help make it possible to finance abortion services for more patients in the DC area. By giving back to DCAF, you will help remove barriers to reproductive choice for our patients! The fun will take place on Sunday, April 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. Register here!
Create a team, join a team, or go solo! Set a fundraising goal to be reached by the event date and start telling everyone you know about DCAF and your commitment to helping people in the DC area have access to safe abortion services without financial barriers. After a few weeks of fundraising, enjoy an afternoon of billiards, food, drinks and mingling. We hope to see you there! If you have any questions, please email [email protected].
