2nd-Annual State of the Uterus

STATE OF THE UTERUS* (*uterus not required) is our annual party for progress; together, we raise money for nonprofits invested in reproductive health, menstrual health and community health, while dancing our butts off and learning about local politics.

The fundraiser began as a response to the Presidential

inauguration in 2017. At our 2017 State of the Uterus, we raised $6500 for five nonprofits and celebrated with a lineup of all-babe DJs, a stellar raffle, tarot, herbalism and a community saging. On top of the party, we curated a local politics rundown from some of Austin’s most impactful organizers and launched the Austin Chapter of We Are: Happy Period, collecting and redistributing more than 1,000 pads and tampons.

This year, we want to raise $8,000 and we think we can do it with your help. On Jan. 26 at Cheer Up Charlie’s, we’ll raise our glasses to another year of hustling for effective, positive change in our communities, while making money moves for ourselves and four other vital community-based nonprofits.

Here's the full list of 2018's beneficiary organizations:
Community Restoration Project by Counter Balance: ATX
Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas
Survive2Thrive Foundation
Homeless Period Project ATX
