Lady Parts Justice League
Summer Comedy Tour 2017:
"Vagical Mystery Tour"
Hosted By Lizz Winstead (co-creator of The Daily Show)

Doors open, 7:00 pm; Show begins, 7:30 pm
Mahall's 20 Lanes
13200 Madison Ave, Lakewood OH 44107

Lady Parts Justice League is a non-profit organization made up of comedians and musicians that uses hilarious videos and live shows to raise awareness about the horrible anti-choice legislation being passed on a daily basis, expose the politicians passing these laws, and fight abortion stigma tooth and nail. We bring our audiences together with local abortion providers and activists like YOU to grow a base of support for these clinics who are under siege from anti-choice extremists.

This summer we are going big! The LPJL Vagical Mystery Tour is an 8-week, 16-city tour across cities in the South and Midwest that are the most heavily targeted by these extremists. We're super excited to connect audiences with their local clinics and activate local pro-choice progressive communities. We are so excited to be coming to Cleveland in July!

Our shows are not only fun, but we close them with a talk-back with local abortion providers and organizers so the audience can learn about the anti-choice legislation happening in Ohio and learn all the ways folks can volunteer with clinics and local campaigns.
