Welcome to our 6-week Abortion Support Training! This training series is for young people ages 14-24 and provides an introduction to the tools, resources, and skills for abortion support work. We welcome anyone who is interested in becoming an abortion doula, companion, and/or support person. The training will center youth-led abortion support efforts, specifically for high school and college students, but we will also discuss how to offer support as community members and continue advocacy after leaving campus. 

Dopo defines an Abortion Doula as “Anyone that can physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually hold space for someone before, during, and/or after abortion.” This training series explores different forms of practical support that may show up in clinical and non-clinical contexts, providing support for procedural and medical abortions, and how to organize your campus community to create support networks.
