February Coffee & Chat – Know Your Plan C: The State of Pills by Mail in the US

It’s 2024, and states across the US are experiencing the most draconian abortion bans in our history. But pills are proliferating, through both mainstream and alternate routes of access, and free confidential support services are spreading too. Plan C’s Guide to Pills remains one of the only comprehensive resources for all of this information, in one place. Come hear from Plan C cofounder and digital director Amy Merrill on the state of pills and ways people can help share this information and support new systems of access.

This is a virtual event using the platform Zoom. Advanced registration is required. All are welcome. Zoom provides real-time closed captioning. For additional access needs, please contact us at: info@grrnow.org.
