In a country dominated by federal, state and local politicians hell bent on bringing on The Apocalypse, the battle to fix it is more crucial than ever. Tune in for Life Is A Living Nightmare: A Telethon To Fix It, a hell-raising comedy fundraiser that will make you laugh while raising awareness and funds to help Lady Parts Justice continue their work curbing the current assault on reproductive rights and replacing political extremists with pro-choice politicians in all branches of government. Let’s be real, the fact that we even have to do a telethon to help get out the vote and throw out anti-choice politicians should have EVERYONE calling in to donate and tuning in to learn how to take action.

ABOUT LADY PARTS JUSTICE:
Lady Parts Justice is the first not safe for work, rapid response reproductive rights advocacy organization that uses comedy, culture and diverse media to sound an alarm on the terrifying erosion of reproductive access. Co-founded by the co-creator of The Daily Show, Lizz Winstead, LPJ uses comedy and reproductive health facts to produce hilarious strategic and educational content that destigmatizes abortion, calls out misogynistic politicians, and rallies voters to fight back against anti choice legislation on a federal, state, and local level.
The name Lady Parts Justice is an homage to Lisa Brown, a former Michigan state rep who when in office was banned from the statehouse floor for using the word vagina when arguing against a transvaginal ultrasound bill. When she asked what she should say they suggested something less provocative like “lady parts.” The offensive nature of men uncomfortable with the word vagina, but perfectly comfortable legislating it, inspired both the name and mission of this groundbreaking reproductive rights organization.
