Next in our series of posts about new Charitocracy nominees, we have nominee The Brigid Alliance, nominated by donor
zardoz. They arrange and fund confidential, personalized travel for those seeking abortion care in increasingly hostile environments. You can find their web site here.
A few words on Charitocracy
Firstly, for newcomers: here's how it works. Donors pool their monthly contributions, as little as $1. The cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So please share this post (see social sharing icons at top of post) and ask your friends to join us and vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. The bigger the pot, the bigger our positive impact on the world!
About nominee The Brigid Alliance
The Brigid Alliance believes that the costs and logistics of traveling to an abortion provider should not inhibit choice. Yet an alarming gap is growing between those who need care and their ability to access it.
State-level restrictive abortion laws and regulations, combined with the rise of misinformation campaigns, the overall decline of local providers, and the unique consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, are increasingly preventing timely abortion care or eliminating it as an option altogether.
The Brigid Alliance arranges and funds long-distance travel support for those seeking later abortion care (after the first trimester) throughout the USA.
We work closely with the community of abortion funds, specialized clinics, and partner organizations across the country to ensure that abortion services are accessible when barriers arise.
Launched in 2018, The Brigid Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit supported by individual donations and grants.
The Brigid Alliance endeavors to comply with the law of the states in which it operates.
