To help support their fight for racial and economic justice in America, we at Unabridged have chosen to support the Equal Justice Initiative.  Each month we will be making a donation and ask that you join us in supporting their work

In light of recent book banning and censorship attempts in America, in 2024 we at Unabridged have chosen to support the Gerber/Hart Library & Archives in their work to collect, preserve, and make accessible the diverse history and culture of LGBTQ+ communities in Chicago and the Midwest. Each month we will be making a donation and we ask that you join us in supporting their work.

In light of the Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, reproductive rights are at risk across the United States. In 2024, we at Unabridged have chosen to support 2 local organizations in the fight to protect a person’s right to choose. Each month we will be making a donation to The Chicago Abortion Fund and Midwest Access Coalition and ask that you join us in supporting their work.

For more information about these organizations, click below.

In 2024 we’re committing to continue this support, and adding another monthly contribution to help address the needs of new migrant arrivals in Chicago by supporting Project AMOR of the Instituto del Progreso Latino! We hope you will consider joining us to support the important work these organizations are doing for our community and across the country!
