Says about This Project!
Ever since the Dobbs decision removing our Constitutional right to an abortion, our area has become a hotbed of advocacy and hands-on help for the many women coming from out of state for abortion care. The number of out-of-state abortion patients seen in some of our local clinics has almost tripled and it is expected to more than double again by next year.
To serve these women, our local section of NCJW is excited to be making Abortion Comfort Kits, assembled by our volunteers and given out by local Planned Parenthood and FPA Women’s Health clinics. The kits contain personal comfort items such as sanitary pads, individual heating pads, water, wipes, some sweets, and a personal note of encouragement.
To raise the needed funds, we're so excited to participate in this year's Long Beach Gives Campaign! And we're so fortunate to have $10,000 of matching funds to kick off our campaign! Everything you give now will be doubled because of some generous members' deep commitment to our project!
