About New River Abortion Access Fund
The New River Abortion Access Fund (NRAAF) is an all-volunteer fund based in the New River Valley. We provide financial and practical abortion support to Southwest Virginians, callers in the Charlottesville area, and folks who are traveling to Virginia, Washington DC or Maryland for a second trimester abortion. We are in the process of expanding our services to other regions of Virginia for callers at or above 10 weeks. NRAAF is dedicated to ensuring that all people have access to safe, legal, affordable abortion care regardless of income level, race, location, ability, gender identity, or immigration status.
New River Abortion Access Fund's Community
In early 2019, three Blacksburg locals launched the New River Abortion Access Fund. We currently fund multiple abortions each week. Although many of our volunteers are college students, we want to prioritize the leadership and experiences of local Southwest Virginians and Appalachians from communities most impacted by abortion barriers, including working-class/poor and rural women, women of color, LGBTQ and gender non-conforming folks.
Get involved with the NRAAF board of directors, intake team, communications team, or fundraising team if you support the organization’s mission and values. We are always accepting volunteer applications at newriverabortionfund.org/volunteer. Please donate to make a difference. Our services depend on the generosity of individual donors like you.
