ACLU and Reproductive Rights Coalition Promoting Abortion Access with Concert in Cleveland

CLEVELAND—On September 10, 2016, the ACLU of Ohio will join a coalition of reproductive rights organizations to host free music and cultural events that highlight support for abortion rights and show how access to abortion benefits women, their families, and the country.

“Ohio is a state that has consistently passed some of the most restrictive reproductive health laws in the country,” said Lisa Wurm, policy manager at the ACLU of Ohio. “This event in Cleveland will send a powerful message that we are organized and ready to defend abortion access for all women.”

Hosted by Comedy Central’s Jessica Williams, the anchor event in Cleveland will feature headlining performance by five time Grammy-nominated artist Sia and a performance by eight time Latin Grammy Award-winning musical artist Natalia Lafourcade. Leslie Jones, the star of Ghostbusters and Saturday Night Live, will be a featured comedian. Additional talent for the events in Cleveland, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta and Philadelphia will be announced later this summer.

Tickets to All Access events are free of charge and are available now on AllAccess2016.com.
