BPM2022 Fundraiser for Reproductive Freedom
This year’s Boston Poetry Marathon is also a fundraiser for two local organizations that help support abortion access and promote reproductive justice, the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund and The Womxn Project. These vital organizations need our support more than ever, now that Roe has been overturned. We are hoping you will help us send a clear message that our community supports reproductive freedom!

Every little bit helps!
About EMA Fund and The Womxn Project
About Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund
The Eastern Massachusetts Abortion (EMA) Fund is your local abortion fund that works to ensure that all people living in or traveling to eastern Massachusetts have access to abortion.
Access to abortion is a matter of social justice, reproductive justice, economic justice, fairness, and human rights.
The EMA Fund provides people with funding and practical support to access abortion care. They help them get onto MassHealth quickly or find doctors that will take their insurance. They negotiate with abortion providers, and pay for callers’ bus or train tickets, car rides, hotels, childcare, and translation services.
They focus on our Eastern Massachusetts community but recognize that the work they do has a ripple effect that furthers the larger movement for reproductive justice.
About The Womxn Project
The Womxn* Project (TWP) is a statewide Rhode Island organization dedicated to building a strong movement that harnesses the power of art, activism and advocacy. They believe that together we can dismantle systems of oppression and uplift the voices of people in our communities throughout Rhode Island in order to shift power and shape the policies that impact our lives and the lives of our neighbors.
They are committed to embodying the principles of reproductive justice, cultivating innovation and advancing real and lasting change.
