RICHMOND DOULA PROJECT
Richmond Doula Project (RDP) is a new partnership with RRFP. RDP provides free emotional, spiritual, and physical support and education to all pregnant people, no matter the outcome of the pregnancy. Learn more about their work here or contact [email protected] or (804) 762-0464 to get connected to a full spectrum doula or to get involved.
RRFP is available for speaking events and partners with other organizations on grassroots campaigns that forefront Reproductive Justice and how abortion funding functions in the context of social justice issues and larger movement building. We've partnered with organizations such as the National Network of Abortion Funds, Southerners on New Ground, the Virginia Anti-Violence Project, the Richmond Area Sexuality Network, Virginia League Planned Parenthood, University of Richmond's Office of Common Ground, Virginia Defenders for Freedom, Justice & Equality, and more for advocacy efforts.
LEADERSHIP BUILDING & SKILL SHARES
We value all the people we work with, including our clients and volunteers, with the hope that experiences with RRFP foster an environment of collective liberation for all involved. Currently, we are in the midst of developing concrete programming to breakdown the hierarchy of service providers, volunteers, and clients that increases access to concrete skills so that we can all get free.
ARTS & CRAFTS
RRFP is all about DIY, especially when it comes to merch making! We skill-share and make things together all the time, especially to raise funds for abortions, including through zine-making, embroidery, and screenprinting.
CHOICE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP
Choice Your Own Adventure is an interactive zine-making workshop where participants navigate the barriers to abortion access in Virginia. Participants leave this workshop with their own personalized zine and some knowledge about what “choice” really looks like. This workshop is an educational tool about the world of abortion funding in the context of Reproductive Justice. If you want to have RRFP facilitate a Choice Your Own Adventure workshop, contact us at [email protected]
In the past, RRFP has hosted reproductive health story sharing circles, to breakdown stigma and shame regarding how our bodies are politicized, policed, and traumatized as we try to navigate reproductive health in all aspects. Sharing stories is a way for us to build community and trust. To contact us about hosting an RRFP Reproductive Health Story Sharing event, please contact us at [email protected]
RRFP primarily supports its work through grassroots fundraising, which looks different every year. In the past, we've had folks host house shows with local musicians, monthly donors who sign up online, grits wrestling tournaments, special nights at local bars, and personal appeals to raise the money we use for abortion funding.
