Out of Silence features vignettes written by a diverse set of playwrights, based on real stories from the 1 in 3 Campaign. The play seeks to move beyond political rhetoric and explore the situations, relationships, emotions, and logistics that contextualize the decision to seek abortion care, building a culture of compassion, empathy, and advocacy.

This is the premiere performance in the state of Michigan, presented by the Michigan Organization on Adolescent Sexual Health (MOASH) at the University of Michigan.
