Our Work

We help shed light on everyday stories that have been in the shadows for too long. Stories that have the power to change conversations and beliefs in favor of what we require—from legislators, family members, and peers—to lead safe and healthy reproductive lives.

What is Abortion Stigma?

Abortion stigma is a shared understanding that abortion is morally wrong and/or socially unacceptable. Understanding what abortion stigma is can help us figure out how to change it.

Theory of Change

More and more people are compelled to tell their stories in public and refuse to let stigma and shame hold sway over their lives. Story by story, community by community, we can connect with one another to change the national conversation.
