An Evening Honoring Susan Hill
Activist and Durham native Susan Hill was committed to providing safe, affordable, and compassionate reproductive health care to women and families. For decades she remained a valiant supporter of reproductive freedom, even in the face of life-threatening adversity.
With the support of Susan’s family, the Spring into Action Gala was created to honor Susan’s memory, to uphold her commitment to reproductive health care access for all North Carolinians and to support the critical political actions and legislative work necessary to to defend against anti-abortion attacks and advocate for policies that protect and advance reproductive rights in our state.
Please join us as we honor Susan’s legacy and renew our resolve to uphold her promise to be present and to continue the fight to make true reproductive freedom a reality for all North Carolinians. We’ll share important information about the future of abortion care and reproductive freedom around the country and right here in North Carolina, Pro-Choice North Carolina’s work to protect abortion access in our state, and the many ways you can make a difference.
