For Free the Pill Fest 2024, young people from across the country took a victory lap after the FDA approved over-the-counter birth control pills (Opill) in July 2023. Through visual art, video, poetry, and other creative forms of educating and storytelling they shared why having this contraception over the counter has been a form of reproductive freedom. 

Free the Pill is an initiative originated by Ibis Reproductive Health to advocate for OTC oral contraceptives. URGE’s #FreeThePillFest is a weeklong content festival geared towards young people in URGE’s investment states – Alabama, California, Georgia, Kansas, Ohio, and Texas – generously provided by a grant from Advocates for Youth.
