About this Project

Through the Ambassadors of Information program, Plan C Pills aims to support creative projects that increase awareness of medication abortion and that speak to the nuances of self-managed abortion and criminalization. To that end, we are excited to announce that our first Ambassadors Creative Summer Fellowship Program will open as of April 11, 2022 and will run through May 14th, 2022 at 11:59pm PST.

This call for creative proposals focuses on innovative, attention-grabbing campaigns and projects that will shift public perception of medication abortion and self-managed abortion. Throughout the summer, ambassadors will work alongside Plan C staff to implement their creative promotional or educational campaigns. We encourage ambassadors to consider that their project may take place in a post-Roe landscape and to plan accordingly. This might mean addressing trigger bans, criminalization, self-managed abortion, abortion support, increased stigmatization, and more.

Some examples of “creative ideas”:
  • A zine
  • Film short
  • Tik-tok series
  • Art piece
  • Photography project
  • Wheat-pasting campaign
  • Day of action
  • Social media campaign
  • In-person or virtual event
  • Talent showcase
  • Screen-printing workshop
  • And so much more!

Plan C Pills will award ambassadors up to $2000 in grant funding to see their idea through implementation. Selected ambassadors will have access to bi-weekly check-ins, digital communications support, and technical assistance through Plan C Pills. On a discretionary basis, selected ambassadors may be granted additional funding for necessary project materials (i.e. studio/location rental, art supplies, printing, social media ads, etc). Selected ambassadors will have through August 31, 2022 to submit their final product, in addition to a one page report on the successes and challenges of their campaign/project.
