For 45 years we have worked hard to ensure that Massachusetts remains a beacon of reproductive freedom, and each spring we have celebrated our mission with our community at the much-beloved Chocolate Madness event.

This spring, on our 45th anniversary, we are excited to bring you a new chocolate celebration aligned with the bold, next era of our work.

On June 19th, join us to honor our past, launch a new 5-year strategic plan, and celebrate the power of your voice.

Thanks to your AMAZING response, we are now sold out!
