In the past three years of our operation, our fund has grown by leaps and bounds with the support of our community. We are now offering assistance to individuals who live anywhere in Maryland (except for Prince George's and Montgomery counties -- serviced by the D.C. Abortion Fund). We're thrilled about what we've been able to accomplish, but ambitious goals mean we need to increase our capacity.
We are actively seeking committed individuals for our Board of Directors to begin a two-year term in January of 2018. We are specifically seeking to expand our external affairs and community outreach team and will give special consideration to individuals with skills and experience in event planning, fundraising, public relations, and communications.
BAF is committed to working in solidarity with the reproductive justice movement. Our goal is to foster the leadership of the individuals most impacted by restrictions on access to abortion, including young people, people of color, Native people, immigrants and refugees, low-income people, LGBTQI* people, people with disabilities, people who have had abortions, people who were formerly incarcerated, and people living at the intersections of those experiences. We strongly encourage people from these communities to apply.
