Love Games – PPNYC art show and fundraiser
February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$17 - $30
We are using February, the month of love, to raise money in support of Planned Parenthood of New York City. If Congress follows through on its defunding plan, this orginanization may no longer be able to provide the essential reproductive health care services that so many vulnerable New Yorkers need. Please join us for an evening celebrating love in our community. All of the funds raised will go directly to Planned Parenthood NYC.

Love Games Gang & Planned Parenthood of New York City
Planned Parenthood of New York City opened its doors in Brownsville, Brooklyn back in 1916. The organization serves all New Yorkers, regardless of their age, gender, immigration status, or ability to pay. In 2015 alone, over 53,000 patients visited a PPNYC. 61% of these patients were low-income who received discounted or free services, 71% were under the age of 30, the vast majority were women.
Today, the future of Planned Parenthood is uncertain in many ways. President-elect Donald Trump and the GOP members of Congress have pledged to cut the organization’s government funding (which makes for more than 40% of the total funding) and implement laws that restrict access to reproductive health care.
