Worcester Telegram & Gazette 01/29/2016
According to Jane Fund of Central Mass. President Lynne McKenney Lydick, the 501(c)(3) is dedicated to providing critical funding for women who are in crisis and cannot afford abortion care. Attracting a younger generation of supporters has been a key element of growing as an organization, said Ms. Lydick, and the fundraiser brought out a small group of young women from Clark University to support the cause. Students Alana Shapiro [16], Isabella Frederick [19] and Samantha Burden [19], three members of Clark NARAL, were in attendance at the event. As part of a group that focuses on spreading sexual health awareness and education across campus, with a specific goal of providing condoms in each of the dorms and securing campuswide access to the Plan B pill, the young women were thrilled to be a part of supporting The Jane Fund.

Essentially it was an anti-union climate in Wisconsin that resulted in severe loss of membership, he said. Chaison said the decline is a major historical shift for a state that at one time was a leader of the national labor movement.
