Building an equitable and sustainable world for today and for tomorrow requires upholding human rights. The right to education, economic independence, and reproductive autonomy are some of the building blocks and must-haves for a healthier, more equitable, and flourishing world.
Crossing The Line
Why Now and What’s at Stake
While it’s too soon to report the impact of Crossing The Line, there has never been a more critical time to tell the real stories of the real people on the front line of reproductive freedom.
The numerous and egregious challenges accessing safe abortion in the U.S., particularly for marginalized people, have rarely been documented in a doc-follow podcast format. This series puts the listener in an individual’s shoes as they navigate untraveled roads. The identity of those seeking abortions will be kept anonymous.
Each episode features a unique first-person narrative of an individual seeking an abortion or those who work tirelessly to enable access. Stories begin when the subject chooses to terminate a pregnancy, seeks help from an abortion fund or support services, or travels far distances to a clinic for a surgical or medical abortion. Additionally, interviews with leading doctors, activists, and experts illuminate what is at stake as abortion deserts expand and rights are restricted.
The Crossing the Line podcast will be supported by a comprehensive social impact and awareness campaign.
- Crossing the Line has a Project Advisory Committee, including issue experts, non-profit leaders, and relevant spokespeople.
- We have, and continue to build, a network of Impact Partners in the abortion services, community advocacy, and reproductive freedom spaces and will drive listeners toward their resources and information.
- The podcast reaches new audiences through innovative social and digital marketing strategies and provides clear opportunities for audiences to learn, support, and advocate in their communities.
- Outcomes are tracked and measured collaboratively, sharing all impact with partners.
