Project Voice covered the NYC subway with pro-choice messages to talk back to shaming anti-abortion ads. Love this!

It takes a lot of courage to be vulnerable and share your abortion experience publicly. If you’ve shared your story in a public venue before, take our storyteller survey so we can figure out how organizations can better support you.

We’re inspired by The Stigma Project to imagine a world without abortion stigma. What would it look like? What would our talking points be? How would people feel after their abortions? What would the media say about abortion providers?

Menstruadora Raps How-To Song For Safe Abortion →

I love this.

When I was hetero (heterosexual), I used the medicine
It worked as you’ll see, and I have no regrets
Let’s abort, we will abort, this hetero-patriacal system

Read the Audre Lorde Project’s Statement on the 10th Annual NYC Trans Day of Action for Social and Economic Justice. Some key points below:

• We demand an end to profiling, harassment and brutality at the hands of the police.  Like many other oppressed communities TGNC people are targeted, profiled and brutalized by the police. The NY Anti-Violence Project reports that Trans women are 4 times more likely to experience police violence than all other people reporting violence. We are in solidarity with FIERCE and their campaign to counter the displacement and criminalization of LGBTQ youth of color. We support legislation that would stop police and prosecutors from using possession of condoms as evidence of ‘criminal activity.’ We oppose increased policing, recognizing that policing doesn’t end hate violence against LGBTSTGNC People. As members of Communities United for Police Reform, we demand an end to the discriminatory “Stop and Frisk” and other “Broken Windows” practices of the NYPD and demand that they make amends. 
•We demand justice for the many TGNC POC who have been beaten, assaulted, raped, and murderedyet these incidents continue to be silenced or misclassified. We also demand an end to non-physical acts of violence such as verbal harassment and gender policing. Instead of disrespecting the identities of TGNC POC, we call for media to address individuals by their preferred names and pronouns. The police and the media continue to criminalize us even when we try to defend ourselves. We know through AVP’s Hate Crime Report that 67% of hate crime murder victims are Trans women of color, and we demand that this end. Hate crime laws will not solve the problem but will give increased power to the state to put more people in jail. In striving for social justice, we recognize complacency as an act of violence and seek to find ways of holding people accountable, and hope to come to a joint understanding of how we can make our communities safer.
