In response to the Supreme Court’s decision in Whole Women’s Health v Hellerstedt, the most monumental abortion rights decision in a generation, #ShoutYourAbortion coordinated a nationwide series of installations designed to elevate the visibility of people who choose abortion.
Portraits of 48 individuals wearing the “Everyone Knows I Had An Abortion” t-shirt appeared in Seattle, Portland, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Antonio. NYC photographer and producer Jackie Neale amassed a team of volunteers, sourced free materials and scouted locations all over Brooklyn and Manhattan. Over the course of a day, Jackie and her team installed projections in half a dozen locations.
This photo shows the projection lighting up a billboard above The Brooklyn Kitchen, next to the Brooklyn Queens Express, in the midst of torrential rain.
