Kavanaugh got you pissed off about the future of Roe v. Wade? Support this awesome event, and this awesome nonprofit.—The Editors.

In 2012, A is For was launched as a response to the ever-escalating legislative attacks on access to safe reproductive healthcare. I’m proud to be one of the co-founders and its vice president.

One of our most successful events is our annual Broadway Acts for Women show at 54 Below in New York City.

Each year, and in the only event of its kind, Broadway performers who support access to reproductive health care show up to sing something they’ve never rehearsed, while the audience bids for a fantastic prize AND the chance to choose the song.

It’s a madcap night of music and mayhem featuring some of Broadway’s biggest stars. This year’s show takes place this Sunday, September 30th and our lineup is absolutely amazing.

Hosted by A is For’s president Martha Plimpton and Saturday Night Live‘s Cecily Strong, our performers include Sara Bareilles, Deborah Cox, Brandon Victor Dixon, Ariana DeBose, Judy Kuhn, Lesli Margherita, Bonnie Milligan, Jeremy Kushnier, Rashida Olayiwola, and Jessica Vosk.

Our auction host for this year is comedian Amanda Duarte, and this year’s beneficiaries are National Advocates for Pregnant Women, Access Reproductive Care, and the National Network of Abortion Funds.
