@LizzWinstead: That Lady Parts Justice and our new educational arm, The LPJ League, inspires women and men to gather their friends to scheme to expose the people in their communities who are working against reproductive freedom. If I could see my work translated into people wanting to incorporating fighting for reproductive justice as a lifestyle, rather than a reaction to crisis, I would die happy.

Next week Lizz’s friends in comedy are doing a special event benefiting Lady Parts Justice.

Want to get involved? Do you like to laugh? On February 14 (yeah, that day) Lizz’s friends are having a comedy fundraiser for Lady Parts Justice. What is LPJ?

Lady Parts Justice is a rapid response, creative production team made up of writers, comedians and activists. This 24/7 rapid response team is on call to make videos, artistic memes and create national actions that respond instantly to the breaking news surrounding reproductive justice issues. Within minutes, or hours, LPJ blasts the perpetrators dispensing damaging information about abortion, crisis pregnancy centers, birth control as well as taking down those who shame and stigmatize women for wanting, having and demanding safe and healthy sex lives on their own terms.

LPJ infuses comedy into reproductive rights spaces while also infusing knowledge and activism into our pop culture and social lives while inspiring folks who have not been active in the feminist and reproductive justice movements to get on board.

I can get behind that. If you’re single and bitter like me, you should totally go. Tickets and details here.
