On the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Girls Rock Denver and Keep Abortion Safe partnered local bands of different musical genres to host a benefit concert called Rockin’ for Roe at the Larimer Lounge. Proceeds benefited the CO Women’s Freedom Fund, a fund to subsidize the cost of abortion procedures in Colorado, and Keep Abortion Safe, a project which uses digital storytelling to destigmatize abortion.
