Thank you for standing for Texans’ reproductive rights last night. In case you haven’t heard the news, Senate Bill 5, the harmful omnibus abortion bill, failedtopass.
This was an important night for reproductive rights in Texas. We appreciate everyone who joined us in orange at the Capitol, posted on social media or followed along.
Thank you, too, to our donors. Since the start of Senator Wendy Davis’s history-making filibuster at 11:18 a.m. yesterday, your generosity has stunned us. Contributions poured in from 98 donors from around the world – nine of you signed up as new sustaining monthly donors.
We are so glad you value the Lilith Fund’s work to remove barriers to reproductive access. Thank you for partnering with us and standing with Texas women and anyone who needs a safe, legal abortion in our state.
Did you know? As long as the Lilith Fund has been around, we have run a Spanish-language hotline for abortion patients who need help paying for their procedure. And we are always looking for friendly and compassionate volunteers to help return our clients’ calls.
The Spanish-language hotline receives a lower volume of calls than the English-language hotline, about 4-6 calls per week. Volunteers on the Spanish-language hotline are responsible for:
returning the approximately 4-6 weekly phone calls
talking callers through their funding options
providing referrals to other resources in the community when needed
granting funding vouchers to qualifying callers
And don’t worry, we train you on all of this! To help, all you need is a phone, internet access, and about 4 hours of free time during any given week. Download our Spanish Language Hotline Volunteer job description here to see if this volunteer position is right for you.
Volunteer training is offered on a quarterly basis. The next group training will be held on June 1, 2013 from noon to 4 p.m. in central Austin – further details will be announced to accepted applicants
