This Fall marks Backline’s 10th Birthday and a decade of offering unconditional and judgment-free support for people in all their experiences with pregnancy, parenting, abortion, and adoption.
To mark this milestone, we will be celebrating for the next 10 days, at happy hours and parties in locations around the country, and right here on our blog! We hope you’ll join us one way or another.
We’re kicking things off today with a Pregnancy Options Workshop & Messaging Training in Indianapolis with our friends at Reproductive Health Technologies Project, and then overlapping Happy Hours in NYC (6-9pm ET at Local 138) and Oakland (5-7pm at Kingston 11)! If you can’t join us in person, you can still leave a ‘toast’ or comment below!
