Join funny ladies Sarah Silverman and Lizz Winstead as they work with NARAL Pro-Choice America, the New York Abortion Access Fund, and Lady Parts Justice to host a star-studded online telethon out of NYC. The three-hour show will simultaneously fight for reproductive justice and entertain with appearances by some great women and allies, including Orange Is The New Black's Dascha Polanco, journalist Sally Kohn, King Ad Rock of the Beastie Boys, and lots more.

According to the event's press release:

When the mainstream media ignored Wendy Davis, America fired up their computers and watched her courage streaming live. With this amazing line up of talent for Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can Choose we expect America to once again fire up their computers, gather for watch parties, take to Twitter and Facebook and say we won’t stand for this while pledging their support.

Tune in online with Lady Parts Justice and do your social media thang @TXWomenForever with the hashtag #TexasWomenForever. This event has the potential to be incredibly meaningful, informative, and effective, as long as we do our part. So, let's channel our inner Howard Beale and raise some hell, please.

Donate and learn more at these organizations' websites: Lady Parts Justice, The Lilith Fund for Reproductive Equity, Whole Women's TX Action Fund, The Texas Equal Access Fund, and Fund Texas Women.

Thanks to A is For, NARAL Pro-Choice, NYAAF, and Lady Parts Justice.
