First Avenue stands against today’s Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade. This heartbreaking decision puts our collective health and well-being at risk, denies people their very human rights, and sets our country back in the progress we’ve made.
While you may feel overwhelmed, it is not the time to give up. At this moment, we must stand together, support each other, and we must act.
First Avenue is donating the profits from ticket sales this weekend (June 24-26) to Fuck Bans Action Plan: The Immediate Impact Fund. We encourage you to take action too.
Services here in Minnesota are critical, and in our neighboring states, even more so. Additional resources on donating, volunteering, and a list of mental health support resources are listed below.
- Fuck Bans Action Plan: The Immediate Impact Fund – providing direct abortion support to those in need. Donations will be split between Keep Our Clinics, National Network of Abortion Funds, and Repro Legal Defense Fund.
- Red River Women’s Clinic (New Location) – The RRWC of Fargo, North Dakota, is readying a new location in Moorhead, Minnesota. The RRWC has served as North Dakota’s only abortion clinic for over 20 years and is now moving to ensure care is not interrupted for people seeking abortions in this region.
