MGG’s Summer Concert Series
Abortion Rights Concert
Sunday, July 17, 5-7pm EST
Blue Ridge Abortion Fund is a nonprofit group that believes all community members, regardless of socioeconomic status, should have agency over their lives and access to the resources needed to make that happen. Headquartered in Charlottesville, they established a system over 30 years ago where people can make appointments at a Virginia-based clinic through Blue Ridge. Essentially, if an abortion-seeker cannot cover the cost of the procedure, or accommodate for transportation and lodging fees, Blue Ridge will step in. Since shifting over to a paid staff a few years ago, they have been able to help over 18,000 people. The nonprofit allocates $13,000 per week to cover the fixed cost of abortions as well as wild-card fees, such as uber rides and bus tickets. Notably, their funds start to dwindle once people start calling for assistance on Monday, and their pocketbooks are usually dried up come Tuesday. Not only does this underscore the need to increase resources for abortion facilitators, but also the significance of Blue Ridge to Virginia’s community. Moreover, with Governor Youngkin’s pro-life status looming over Virginian politics, the roll-back of Roe will heavily impact abortion access in the state.
