"Holler Health Justice is a volunteer-run abortion fund that provides everything from practical support—like advice on car rides and plane tickets—to a herculean amount of coordination to ensure people make it to their appointments... 'Whether Roe exists or not... there’s still going to be the same need for us.'"
“If Hailey hadn’t heard about Holler Health Justice from a friend who had an abortion, she said her life would have been ruined... 'If it wasn’t for them I would have had no choice but to have that child because I had no support... They don’t ask questions, they just help you.'"
"Holler Health Justice combines the experiences and passions of its leaders. In addition to practical services and abortion funding, Gaffin and Calloway tell their stories to help people feel less alone... 'Whatever happens with Roe v. Wade, we will still be here. You can’t stop us.'"
"[Holler Health Justice] helps people afford abortions and the related costs of child care, gas, and lodging in a state with one clinic and one of the highest poverty rates in the nation... [their] clients are rural residents who may travel hours from mountain communities to access abortion."
