for support of the State Infrastructure Fund voting rights portfolio
The State Infrastructure Fund is a donor collaborative fund based at NEO Philanthropy that works to increase civic participation and advance voting rights among people of color and other historically underrepresented communities. To achieve these goals, it funds programs that increase voter participation rates and advances the voting rights of historically disenfranchised communities through advocacy, litigation, voter mobilization, and robust election protection efforts.
for the Abortion Access Front project
Abortion Access Front (AAF), formerly Lady Parts Justice League, uses humor and real-time media to destigmatize abortion and expose antichoice forces working to dismantle access to reproductive rights in the United States. AAF breaks daily reproductive rights news and analysis; engages audiences through funny videos, live broadcasts, and social media; and is a trusted source for rapid response information. It also provides on-the-ground aid, morale boosting, and community building to abortion providers servicing low-income and people of color audiences in states that are politically hostile to abortion.
