A is For
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 which fosters that legislation.
Hester Prynne’s Scarlet A, intended as a symbol of shame, is reappropriated. You decide what your A is for: Advocacy, Autonomy, Abortion, etc.
A is For amplifies art and artists working to end the stigma against abortion. We envision a world in which every person has access to the full spectrum of reproductive healthcare free from judgment, scrutiny, and obstruction.
Working at the intersection of the arts and social justice, we believe art is a powerful tool for change, and through our creative initiatives we seek to elevate the human experience of abortion.
The A is For Playwriting Contest is designed to engage playwrights who are passionate about supporting abortion rights and reproductive justice, and offers audiences the opportunity to see those stories represented on stage.
Theatre is an especially powerful platform with which to share stories, debunk myths, and disempower fears. The stories we bring to the fore are diverse in perspective as well as imagination. They reflect the great variety of experiences that reproductive justice demands we all recognize.
In 2021, the A is For Playwriting Contest received 252 original, one-act plays about reproductive justice from all around the world.
A talented panel of judges including Cris Eli Blak, David Cromer, Jill Filipovic, Jonathan Marc Sherman, Lindy West, and Rhiana Yazzie selected the 2021 contest winners. A is For is proud to present this play festival to the public free of charge.
