Want to start something? This movement is yours. SYA has created the tools you see below to help you inspire conversations about abortion and demonstrate your fierce love of reproductive freedom in all sorts of different ways. Host an event, make art, display SYA posters or videos in your business, put the word ABORTION on your body—there are tons of ways to help us shatter the idea that abortion is something we aren’t supposed to talk about.
***SYA has coordinated a nationwide series of actions around the Inauguration, Womxn’s Marches, and anniversary of Roe v Wade—it’s called #TogetherForAbortion and ANYTHING you find on this page makes you a part of the effort. Learn more & get #TogetherForAbortion 1/20-1/22! ***
Postering Kit— These “Everyone Knows” PDFs can be used to make posters, which can then be affixed to all sorts of surfaces. Be sure that you know the legality of wheatpasting posters in your region and whatever rules might be specific to your site. Here is a recipe for wheatpaste. The possibilities are endless! Please post some pictures of your buttons on this site –it would make us so happy to see what you come up with!
One easy way to start conversations about abortion is to pick up some SYA swag: we’ve got a range of garments, zines and media. And trust us: wearing something that says the word “ABORTION” changes the world around you. Every. Single. Time. All sales support actions by SYA!
