Abortion is Autonomy: Stories about freedom, challenge, care, and joy.

Baltimore Abortion Fund Fundraiser

FRI AUG 26 | 7PM Cocktail and Music | 8PM Stories
$15, $20, $50, $100 Donation Tiers

There will be a waiting list at door starting at 7PM. No guarantees.

Join us for an evening of personal stories celebrating abortion access and the right to bodily autonomy.

This Stoop Special Event, presented in partnership with Baltimore Abortion Fund and Creative Alliance, features seven storytellers sharing a diverse range of abortion experiences. Some are full of joy and freedom, healing and care. Some involve challenge and fear, disregard and difficulty. At this critical moment, these stories take us behind the headlines, offering a powerful and unforgettable look at how the personal intersects with the political.

PLUS: Come early to hear live music from Glorian, the new project of Joseph Mulhollen, former founder and front person of Joseph & The Beasts. From dance tracks to acoustic sets, Glorian combines Mulhollen’s love of neo-folk and electronic dance pop. Instagram: @glorian_music

The Stoop Storytelling Series supports access to safe, legal, and de-stigmatized abortion as a fundamental human right.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Baltimore Abortion Fund, an organization dedicated to reducing financial and logistical barriers to obtaining an abortion for people in Maryland or traveling to Maryland for care.
