Abortion Care Network (ACN) was founded in 2008. According to their website, the Abortion Care Network "is the national association for independent community-based, abortion care providers and their allies. Together we work to ensure the rights of all people to experience respectful, dignified abortion care."[1]

Recipient of Open Society Funding

Abortion Care Network was awarded a grant for $70,000 over six months to "create a [national] network of social workers uniquely positioned to provide support to abortion providers."

Open Society Foundation's Communities Against Hate initiative "supports organizations that are grappling with the spike in hate incidents in the United States over the last several months" as explained by a white paper dated June 22 2017.[2] It continues: "Our local grants, which range from $15,000 to $150,000, aim to support, protect, and empower those who are targets of hateful acts and rhetoric, and to bolster communities’ resilience and ability to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future. We are making grants on a rolling basis, and there are a few more in process. A complete list will be published on the Open Society Foundations website when all of the grants have been issued."

Celebrate Abortion Care

The "Celebrate Abortion Care" poster series is one of the "stigma busting projects from ACN clinics and our allied members."
