I cry in this one! Sometimes we just gotta feel our feelings. This topic is incredibly close to my heart and work and I have such a good time chatting to my longtime ally in this work Kamyon Conner, a licensed social worker and the director of Texas Equal Access Fund. Texas Equal Access Fund provides funding to low-income people in the northern region of Texas who are seeking abortion and cannot afford it, while simultaneously working to end barriers to abortion access through community education and shifting the current culture toward reproductive justice. I was honored to be presented with TEA Fund's volunteer of the year award in 2019 and I continue to work closely with the fund to help folks access their reproductive rights and make sure we are as inclusive an organization as possible.
