ICAH is currently collecting stories from young people (under age 24) in Illinois who have ended pregnancies or thought about ending pregnancies. We believe that these stories must be heard, especially in light of the national political climate and the 2013 enforcement of the Parental Notification for Abortion Act in Illinois.
The stories collected will inform a play in FYI’s public season in Spring 2018 to advocate for abortion access for all youth. Storytellers' names and identifying information will not be shared, and we will ensure that any aspects stories that end up in the play are represented in a way that storytellers feel comfortable with.
Interviews will take place starting July 1, 2017. If you or someone you know is interested in sharing your story, please contact Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 773-599-1063. We will provide a $25 Visa Gift Card for an hour of your time. We are happy to interview you at a place of your choosing, or at ICAH’s office: 719 S State St., Chicago, IL.
