Since the Supreme Court draft was leaked earlier this month, news and social media sites (as well as many of our thoughts and daily conversations) have been filled with updates surrounding the Supreme Court’s effective overturning of Roe v. Wade. People all over the nation have taken to the streets to protest, and many have looked for ways to donate their time and/or funds to organizations fighting to keep abortion legal. Here’s a look at a number of Bonfire sellers who are using their apparel-based fundraisers to raise funds for reproductive rights.
Cristina Romero (she/they) of Howdy Ceramics
No Uterus No Opinion! And Don’t Tread on Me Campaigns
Cristina Romero, a ceramic artist and illustrator who lives in Austin Texas, created their No Uterus No Opinion! And Don’t Tread On Me campaigns to benefit the National Network of Abortion Funds. All proceeds raised from this campaign will go towards the Lilith Fund to help provide financial support to persons in need of abortions in Austin, Texas. Cristina’s work is bright, happy, and super unique – and those qualities shine through on their fundraising designs as well.
Mind Your Own Uterus Campaign
Huyen Dinh, a lettering artist based in Los Angeles, created their Mind Your Own Uterus campaign to raise funds for Women’s Reproductive Rights Assistance Project, who provides urgently-needed financial assistance nationwide to individuals seeking abortion services or emergency contraception. Huyen’s incredible lettering skills make this eye-catching and thought-provoking design POP.
Laura Borichevsky (she/they) of Sex Outside
Under-Loved Millennial Campaign
Laura is a sex educator and the founder of Sex Outside, a podcast that strives to normalize conversations about sex, gender, and love by looking at these topics and their many facets through the lens of the outdoors and nature. Laura created their Under-Loved Millennial campaign in response to a tweet by Representative Matt Gaetz that said, “How many of the women rallying against overturning Roe are over-educated, under-loved millennials who sadly return from protests to a lonely microwave dinner with their cats, and no bumble matches?” Laura’s t-shirt design was so powerful it caught the attention of Gaetz, who then shared another tweet about it, making his feelings very well known. All proceeds from Laura’s Florida-Representative-Matt Gaetz-aggravating campaign will benefit the National Network of Abortion Funds.
Raina Rue (she/her/they) of Juniper Moon Folk Arts
Preserve Abortion Rights Campaign
Raina Rue, the artist behind Juniper Moon Folk Arts, created this Preserve Abortion Rights fundraiser for Holler Health Justice.
