The goal of this series is simply to make a difference for a cause that we feel very strongly about: women’s basic rights to reproductive freedom and affordable health care for those who need it. We need to start covering our own asses now. We need to organize and mobilize. It’s time to make a positive impact. Music is one of the most universal means of using one’s voice to embody beliefs, and it’s time for us all to speak up.
