About the Organization: Lilith Fund, founded in 2001, funds abortion and advocates for change through the movement for reproductive justice. Lilith Fund operates a mostly volunteer-run hotline in order to provide direct financial assistance to people in the central and southern half of Texas seeking abortion care. Last year, we provided grants to more than 1,700 people who otherwise would not have been able to afford a safe abortion. Lilith Fund also engages in local and statewide movement-building, organizing, and policy advocacy work in order to create systemic change. Lilith Fund is a women of color-led organization.
