— BEHIND THE PARTY —

At State of the Uterus, we stand to dismantle the stigma that prevents all genders and sexes from receiving appropriate reproductive care and health services. We stand to acknowledge and fight against the intersectional issues that affect the health of women and nonbinary people, like access to resources that cover basic needs, systemic racism, transphobia, abuse and violence, sexual miseducation and more. We stand to create spaces that prioritize individual agency and the communication of truthful, responsible information. We stand to decriminalize abortion. We stand for ourselves.

Since SOTU’s start in 2017, SOTU has raised more than $20,000 for local grassroots nonprofits and organizations led by women and nonbinary folks, including #bbatx (that’s us), Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, the KIND Clinic, Collegiate Mom Coalition, the Abortion Care Network, the Lilith Fund, Counterbalance: ATX, the Survive2Thrive Foundation, Flo Code, the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, We Are Happy Period and Annie’s List. The annual pop-up party is attended by more than 1500 people per year, and features a lineup of all-babe DJs, a stellar local biz raffle, a small marketplace, speeches and talks from Austin’s most influential and impactful organizers and thought leaders, period-kit packing (for distribution to Austin’s homeless and displaced communities) and educational activities. On top of the party, SOTU is preceded and followed by leadership trainings, discussions and hands-on workshops for aspiring organizers and advocates looking to change their communities.
