Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

We're dazed and devastated by the news regarding a presumptive near-future for reproductive health in the US that somehow promises to be even crueler than the present. We acknowledge the hell out of the ways that marginalized people will be hit worst.

We also do not confuse any kind of gesture from a crossword venue for a solution to institutional violence carried out through the denial of basic healthcare. And yet, indeed, we sure will plug organizations that send money where it is needed using whatever platform we have.

And so, attached, you'll find a lovely crossword by Wyna Liu that originally appeared in the collection These Puzzles Fund Abortion Too, organized by Rachel Fabi. This puzzle is otherwise exclusive to the collection, and Wyna agreed to allow us to send it as a bonus.

The AVCX is making a $300 collective contribution to These Puzzles Fund Abortion Too's campaign, whose proceeds will be divided by the National Abortion Access Fund evenly among seven abortion funds across the country. We hope you'll join us by contributing as well.

If you send a receipt for a contribution to These Puzzles Fund Abortion Too or any abortion fund in any amount whatsoever to, we'll enter your name in a drawing to win a free copy of the new Inkubator Crosswords book, which we'll send you directly.

In sadness and solidarity,
