‘Art For Abortion Access’ Show at Vee Vee

Community members looking to support reproductive justice can do so during a collaborative art event between Vee Vee and local artists on August 13. “It’s our job to step up and support access for all to have this essential medical care. That’s why we’re raising funds for The Brigid Alliance, who assists women in need throughout the entire process of receiving abortion care. Every dollar we get at the event will go directly to support their work,” said Jamaica Plain resident Jeremy Fischer of Boston For All, the group behind the event. All art for sale has been donated by the artists themselves because they have chosen to support the cause.
