Happy season of growth from all of us here at the Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project.
We want to party with you, our wonderful RRFP Supporters !!
Get ready you fantastic RRFP supporters for a party the likes of which you've never seen-- it's going to be a night of counting our totals and celebrating all of our hard work as our 2016 Bowl-A-Thon season comes to an end. We've already surpassed $31,000 despite cyber and legislative attacks to abortion access and it's not too late to support our continued work.
Did you know that in 2015, RRFP assisted 260 people who needed financial and practical support to access necessary healthcare? This year, Planned Parenthood’s state funding may get gutted, and there are currently 7 bills in the VA state legislature that may make access to abortion even more difficult. Now, more than ever, we need your support. We can’t keep our work afloat in the next year without you!
And so, we’re announcing that it’s that time again for RRFP’S 2016 ANNUAL BOWL-A-THON FUNDRAISING SEASON ! Registration is now open for grassroots fundraising teams, and we need your help!
ANNOUNCEMENT: RRFP is looking for volunteers -- please spread far and wide!
The Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project is looking for two folks to fill special volunteer positions for our 2016 Bowlathon Fundraising Season: Volunteer Outreach Coordinator & Event Coordinator.
And for 2016, RRFP is ALSO looking to recruit more folks for our Intake Counselor team!
RRFP will provide training for all qualified candidates, along with access to a phone and Internet if necessary. Although these are unpaid volunteer positions, RRFP strongly believes in supporting the growth and leadership of our volunteers and leveraging our resources to do so, which includes sending volunteers to relevant conferences and external training opportunities. We prioritize people of color, poor people, those who have personal experience with abortion services, survivors of violence, and LGBTQ+ people in our work.
