4.1.14 Deadline

The Abortion Conversation Project announces its Spring 2014 Deadline for Proposals: April 1st, 2014. Grantees can expect to hear the results at the end of April.

ACP’s mission is to challenge the polarization that characterizes current abortion conversation, lessen the stigmatization of abortion, and promote speaking and listening with empathy, dignity, and resilience about even the most difficult aspects of abortion.

ACP is funding projects that promote in-person discussions about abortion.  We strongly urge that you speak to an ACP Board member before applying. See separate post for application.

 Progress of Current ACP Mini-Grant Projects

“This is the exciting time for Abortion Conversation grantees, says Peg Johnston Board member. “They are diving into their projects and making it real.”

Cindy Cooper of Words of Choice is already mapping a walking tour of Reproductive Justice sites in New York City. One stop is likely to be Madame Restelle’s an 1800’s abortion provider, as well as Rev. Moody’s church: he started the Clergy Consultation Service to help women find abortion services before abortion was legal.

Folks on the tour may see evidence of another grantee-  Project Voice a website created by Maya Pindyck. She and her associates will create materials that “talk back” to anti-abortion propaganda on the streets and subways of New York.

 Another blog about abortion, Abortion Chat has already used grant money to chat up the idea of writing about an abortion experience. She will be at the AWP conference talking to writers about the complexity of abortion in their writing.

Meanwhile, prior grantees are in action. Shweta Krishnan of Abortion, According to Me, is collecting abortion stories of Indian women. Abortion is legal in India but experiences vary widely and women rarely get to tell their stories. Through Education for Choiceyoung people in the UK have access to accurate information about abortion and places to discuss abortion, through an ACP funded project.

    Having read this I thought it was extremely informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this content together.

    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!
