This grant will support the Lady Parts Justice League project, which uses humor and pop culture to strengthen reproductive health and justice. Founded by Lizz Winstead, co-creator and former head writer of "The Daily Show," Lady Parts Justice galvanizes support for reproductive rights by developing original comedic content that highlights threats to reproductive rights and abortion access; engaging young people in activism through social media and other online spaces; and capitalizing on live audiences to do in-person engagements such as clinic support tours, collaborative events, activist workshops, rallies, and speaking events.
