Hi! I’m the new DCAF president

It’s been a busy few months at DCAF, but I wanted to take a moment to say hi! If you don’t know me, I am Dee, the incoming president of the DC Abortion Fund.

I’m no stranger to DCAF. I joined DCAF back in 2014, first serving as a case manager and then serving on the board for the past 3 years.

I do this work because I believe that people accessing abortion should be the primary decision makers of their lives, and I refuse to let systemic oppression get in the way of people accessing health care.

Abortion funds like DCAF redistribute resources to build a better world where access isn’t determined by what’s in your wallet or where you live.

The road ahead of us is long. Abortion continues to be marginalized in the health system. People continue to need to travel further and further for care. Those who access care and those who do this work continue to be met with opposition and vitriol. But together, we are a powerful network of volunteers and donors who are here for the people whose care is at risk, and we are not going anywhere.

DCAF’s work truly takes a village, and we appreciate all that you do to make sure our callers receive the care they deserve. This movement needs all of us to keep showing up, day after day, week after week.

If you’re as excited about the future of DCAF as I am — consider chipping in and becoming a monthly donor, or making a special one-time gift!
