Chicago Abortion Fund (CAF) provides financial support to people needing assistance paying for an abortion. We boldly affirm a person's right to choose whether to parent or not and that right should not be determined because of age, race, marital status - and most importantly, economic status. We support reproductive freedom, autonomy, and justice.
The Chicago Abortion Fund 2019 Bowl-A-Thon is Sunday, April 28 from 1-5pm at Seven Ten Lanes in Hyde Park.
Through the Bowl-A-Thon campaign, abortion funds across the country host events to celebrate our movement and raise money to fund abortion. Last year, we raised over $50,000 through the Bowl-A-Thon, and this year we're aiming even higher for $75,000.
Sign up to build a fundraising/bowling team and join the Facebook event so we know you're coming!
This year is even better than before, because we have several kick-off/information session events to start the celebration early.
Come learn all about CAF's work, including the Bowl-A-Thon, and how YOU can get more involved. Plus, have a drink, meet Chicago Abortion Fund board members, volunteers, and supporters, eat some snacks, and buy CAF merch at one of these three events!
Thursday, February 7, from 6-8pm at Sweet Water Foundation, 5749 S Perry Ave. in Washington Park,
Saturday, February 9, from 3-5pm at Rogers Park Social, 6920 N Glenwood Ave in Rogers Park,
Sunday, February 10 from 4-6pm at Hopewell Brewing Co., 2760 N Milwaukee Ave in Logan Square
Admission to the Bowl-A-Thon and all kick off events is FREE and ALL Chicago Abortion Fund supporters are welcome.
There is no doubt we are facing hostile territory at the federal level and in many state governments. But for the many people who call abortion funds for support, abortion access is already hard to come by. Abortion funds know how to support our people and how to fight right-wing attacks on abortion rights and bodily autonomy, because we've been doing it since before Roe v. Wade--and we will ALWAYS continue. Your support is what makes that possible.
