Elevate: An Uplifting Evening of Abortion Storytelling

Monday, May 9 at 7:00 p.m.

In-Person at Theaterworks, 233 Pearl Street in Hartford
or Virtually

Featured Guest: Renee Bracey Sherman

With reproductive rights under constant attack, we must continue the fight until everyone in Connecticut who needs an abortion can get one.

Join our fundraising event to honor the experiences of abortion patients, providers, and anyone who keeps abortion care accessible in our communities. Support the urgent work of Planned Parenthood Votes! Connecticut to advance policies and elect champions in our state to defend reproductive freedom.
