The speakout, which will run from 1 to 9 p.m. EST, will be recorded live in Washington, D.C. and livestreamed at the 1 in 3 website. Participants can share via Skype, prerecorded video, or live in the Advocates for Youth studio.
The project aims to challenge abortion stigma and create a culture of empathy, compassion and support for abortion access, according to the 1 in 3 site.
“We are really excited,” said Julia Reticker-Flynn, Associate Director of Organizing and Mobilization at Advocates for Youth. “Every hour is chock full with people from across the country who will share their stories.”
