Come Celebrate a National Day of Women’s Pride at the Lady Parts Justice V to Shining V Event!

  You are probaMI V to Shining V Event 9.27.14bly already aware that the conservative War on Women has continued unabated, and has in fact only increased in intensity.  Just this past year, Michigan politicians have decided that they belong way up inside your vagina in the following ways: 1.  In March 2014, an Insurance Ban for abortion coverage went into effect.  And there are no exceptions for the life of the woman, rape or incest.  The law allows Michigan employers to decide whether or not to purchase a separate “abortion rider policy” to cover the procedure for its employees.  Women who purchase individual health plans do not have the option of purchasing the rider. 2.  In June 16 male politicians introduced an extreme fetal heartbeat bill, which would ban almost all abortions in Michigan. 3.  Michigan’s budget, approved in June, gives $800,000 to an anti-abortion group which routinely lies to women, while simultaneously canceling the public family planning health insurance (Plan First), which provided low-income women with insurance to cover preventative gynecological care and birth control. Enough is enough. On Saturday, September 27, from 2-5 PM at the Park Bar in Detroit, come join Lady Parts Justice in a National Day of Women’s Pride.  This free event, headlined by Lisa Brown, Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor, and hosted by comedian Lianna Carrera, will feature local Detroit entertainers and speakers to raise awareness about the continued attacks on our reproductive freedom and get out the vote for November 4th! Lady Parts Justice was founded in 2012 by Lizz Winstead, co-creator and former head writer of The Daily Show, as a result of Michigan’s own Lisa Brown being censored on the House floor for using the word “vagina.”  From the beginning, Lady Parts Justice has used humor and outrage to reach women and men all over the country, waking people up to the attacks on women from local politicians. So grab a bunch of friends and come join Lady Parts Justice and Northland Family Planning at the Park Bar on Saturday, September 27 from 2-5 PM.  Let’s drink, have fun, get loud, spread knowledge, and get organized! The Line-Up Speakers:

  • Lisa Brown, Michigan Democratic Candidate for Lieutenant Governor
  • Renee Chelian, Founder and Executive Director of Northland Family Planning
  • Amy Lynn Smith, writer and health care advocate
  • Rashida Tlaib, Michigan State Representative
