U of WI-Milwaukee FMLA Raises Money and Awareness with Rock for Choice Concert

Educating their campus and raising awareness about the threats to abortion access and reproductive rights, the FMLA Affiliate at the UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN AT MILWAUKEE organized the cityís first Rock for Choice benefit concert with much success. The group had a rocking good time and raised $770 for the Feminist Majority Foundationís National Clinic Access Project.

The Feminist Majority Foundationís National Clinic Access Project engages in public education, advocacy work, and grassroots organizing to increase public awareness of anti-abortion extremist violence. Leading efforts nationwide to keep womenís health clinics open in the face of violence and
intimidation, our clinic access project conducts the most extensive research and monitoring of extremistsí actions and violence. More information on the National Clinic Access Project and Rock for Choice.
