The Lilith Fund for Reproductive Equity says
We are so excited to announce our 12th Annual Reproductive Equity Awards in Austin!

The Reproductive Equity Awards are held each year by Lilith Fund to celebrate the commitment and achievements of members of our community in the fight for reproductive justice. This fall, for the first time, the Reproductive Equity Awards will be held in Houston, San Antonio in addition to Austin!

We hope you’ll join us in honoring the work of Texas State Senator Sylvia Garcia and local journalist Mary Tuma as we celebrate truth, power, and justice in Texas.

Over the past two years, Texans have suffered clinic closures, court battles, and — during this recent legislative session — the passage of even more restrictions aimed at destroying what is left of access to safe, legal abortion in Texas. This year legislators went after abused and neglected teenagers in particular by making it extremely difficult for minors to obtain a judicial bypass needed to waive dangerous parental consent laws.

Lilith Fund serves Texans who are already burdened by limited access to health care due to income disparity, racial disparity, geography and other barriers, and who now face increased travel, wait times and costs due to the fewer number of clinics in our state

Each year, Lilith Fund honors true champions for reproductive rights who fight against these injustices. This year our honorees truly embody the theme of truth, power, and justice. Senator Garcia has worked tirelessly to fight for people most affected by harmful budget cuts and abortion restrictions. Mary Tuma of the Austin Chronicle has consistently used her voice to educate the public and advocate for change through her esteemed reporting and journalism.

The Lilith Fund helps Texans pay for their abortion when they can’t afford it, and this year we are giving out more in direct assistance than we ever have before. We couldn’t have come this far without you, and we are counting on your support again so that we can continue our work. We’re all in this together.

We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you in October.
