LADY PARTS JUSTICE- Kicking Politicians Out of Vaginas Since 2012
Politicians have been so successful at legislating access to reproductive healthcare that in 2016, 87% of the counties in the United States DO NOT have an abortion provider. National and local media outlets brush this crisis aside calling it a “wedge issue” or a “women’s issue.”
Well last time I checked, women are human beings and these laws are human rights abuses. So I decided, “Screw the media, I’ll let folks know how bad it is!”
Who am I?
I’m Lizz Winstead, comedian and co-creator of The Daily Show. I have taken my skills at satirizing politicians and started Lady Parts Justice (LPJ), a rapid response comedy messaging team comprised of comedians, writers, actors and activists who use humor to expose elected officials dedicating their life to legislating abortion rights out of existence. We can’t do this work without your support.
WHY IS LPJ A PLACE FOR YOU TO INVEST SOME CASH?
We cut through the bull in a way NO OTHER reproductive rights organization can.
- We make comedy videos that bring national attention to the local politicians who are passing these heinous laws. We want everyone to learn who they are!
- We travel around the country and work with reproductive rights organizations on the ground, helping them add some humor to their work to get out the vote and expose their local extremists.
- We have the only podcast talking about the big reproductive rights news stories in a fun way that reaches outside the activist bubble to engage new supporters.
WHAT WILL YOU BE FUNDING?
Your donation will help us fill the media void. Here’s how:
VIDEO PRODUCTION & PROMOTION: Your support will allow us to hire full-time folks to increase this work and help get our videos into more mainstream and pop culture spaces, so more people will learn about threats to reproductive rights.
REPRO MADNESS, THE LPJ PODCAST: Donations will help us expand our podcasting to a weekly basis. Your support will help us with hiring a producer to make that happen.
RESEARCH: LPJ’s website has an interactive map that features all the horrible state laws accompanied by hilarious videos explaining them. Your donations can help us do research full-time to ensure our website remains a current, reliable and entertaining information hub.
OUTREACH-WORKSHOPS AROUND THE COUNTRY: Your support will help us travel to states that are under siege and work with the folks fighting these laws on the ground, helping them to create new, fun and compelling ways to raise awareness about and challenge these unhinged politicians.
REAL TALK: LPJ is up against anti-choice organizations that have endless funding streams from anti-science, anti-women sources. This allows them to work 24/7 to spread their bullshit and destroy access to reproductive services.
We need to loudly stand up to them like no one has before.
We hope you can help make that happen. Please donate!
