Monthly Action: May 2017

For May, I would like to encourage everyone to send cheer to centers that support women, women’s health, and a woman’s right to chose. Mother’s Day is May 14th for those of us based in the U.S.A., and I think it’s an appropriate time to take a moment to support the people and places that help women become mothers when the time is right for them. I include an adoption service among my addresses because I believe in choice without demonizing abortion or idealizing adoption. Women deserve the truth and access to all options. That’s the definition of freedom. Let’s celebrate it for everyone. Let’s remind those fighting for us that we care about the hard work they are doing.

Here are some suggested addresses:
