What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Founded in 2008, Abortion Care Network (ACN) is the national association for independent community-based, abortion care providers and their allies. Independent abortion providers care for the majority of people seeking abortion in the U.S. – often serving individuals and families with the fewest resources and in the most rural parts of our nation. Together we work to ensure the rights of all people to experience respectful, dignified abortion care.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Uniting Our Voices

Uniting Our Voices (UOV) provides small-group trainings where independent abortion care providers learn media and messaging skills, build meaningful relationships within their training cohorts, and receive continued support and learning opportunities. By elevating the unique perspectives of independent abortion care providers at the local, state, and national levels, Uniting Our Voices increases public awareness and support for the work of Indies.

Population(s) Served

Indies clinics provide the majority of abortion care in the United States; yet most folks don't know they exist. The Keep Our Clinics campaign was designed to create national awareness and recognition for indie abortion providers while raising money for ACN's clinics. All funds raised through this campaign go to our clinic members.

Population(s) Served

ACN works with a cohort of volunteer social workers and healing practitioners to facilitate online and in clinic sessions for ACN clinic members to help staff manage the stress and challenges of working in abortion care. This program is intended to reduce burnout and increase support for staff working in abortion care.

Population(s) Served

ACN also offers 1:1 individualized support for clinics related to a wide variety of unique challenges that indie clinics face. From HR/operational support, financial management resources, needing to connect with network allies and many things in between, ACN is here to support the providers who make abortion care possible.
