A is For is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing reproductive rights and ending the stigma against abortion care. Founded in 2012, A is For emerged as a response to the ever-escalating legislative attacks on access to safe reproductive healthcare. 

We passionately stand against  the culture of shaming that fosters that legislation. 

Hester Prynne’s Scarlet A, intended as a symbol of shame, is re-appropriated. You decide what your A is for: Advocacy, Autonomy, Abortion, etc. 

A is For envisions a world in which every person has access to the full spectrum of reproductive healthcare, free from shame, stigma, and obstruction.


  • We partner with organizations that are working at the ground level, leading the fight to defend or expand reproductive rights in the Courts and among the public. When possible, we focus on local groups who know their communities and have been at this a while. By providing financial assistance to these vital organizations, we are able to expand our reach and promote access to the full spectrum of reproductive healthcare for those who need it most.

  • We use the Arts as a platform to to eradicate the stigma against abortion care. From video and social media campaigns to theatre and other storytelling series, A is For seeks to elevate the human experience of abortion.
