#12. Buy sidewalk counselors a coffee.

Sidewalk counselors are people who wait peacefully outside abortion clinics to offer resources and compassion to women seeking abortion. This work can be emotionally and physically exhausting, and counselors appreciate tangible and emotional support. Find out when they’re outside your local clinics, and show up with some small coffees for them or, depending on the time of year, a hot chocolate or cold lemonade. If they don’t know you and you think they might be skeptical about taking beverages from strangers, bring them $5 gift cards to the local coffee shop instead. The drink is nice; the knowledge that people in their community are with them is even nicer.

Review a summary of ways to support sidewalk counselors here.
