  • Project Voice Receives ACP Grant

    Posted on November 17, 2013

    Project Voice is the recipient of a grant from the Abortion Conversation Project! This funding will support Project Voice's upcoming "Everyone Knows Someone" guerilla art campaign that aims to spark unexpected conversations about abortion throughout New York City. The campaign will counter subway advertisements that present women--specifically low-income, minority women-- who have unplanned pregnancies as pitied, alone, and naive.

    As an extension of Project Voice's mission, the "Everyone Knows Someone" campaign will, through the proliferation and curation of aesthetic words and images, talk back to these ads and present women who have abortions as diverse, ethical, powerful, and belonging to a large community. By confronting both the silence surrounding abortion and the ways in which women contemplating abortion get portrayed as tragic characters, Project Voice's campaign hopes to reduce the stigma surrounding abortion while potentially generating conversations about abortion in neighborhoods where abortion shame seems thickest.

    Many thanks to the Abortion Conversation Project for making this project possible, and for funding other wonderful projects working towards the same goal. You can read about them here.

  • Project Voice Relaunches

    Posted on November 29, 2011

    Welcome to the new home of Project Voice! We have moved our domain name from www.theabortionproject.org to www.projectvoice.org. We have changed our design, too. Hopefully, this new website will make it easier to navigate stories, share your own, and read the words of women who have had abortions.

    Also, we have finally gotten more technologically savvy — you can now stay connected to Project Voice via facebook and twitter!

    For Project Voice's relaunch, our friends at Exhale have featured co-founder Maya Pindyck's reflection on the making and meaning of Project Voice. You can read it here.
