Initiative & Development
All Aboard! Abortion Rights is a developing initiative with Abortion Rights UK to create performance-based workshops which tackles abortion stigma aimed at young adults.
Young people face unique barriers when seeking accurate information about abortion, and in accessing abortion services, we’re creating a space in which we can exchange and be entertained, and formulate ideas for change, in a world where too often people make our bodies their business.
