Pregnancy, birth, and parenting are some of the most dangerous life decisions Black, Brown, and Indigenous people must make in this country.

At least 1,200 people, but likely many more, around the United States have been prosecuted and punished for actions or inactions that would not be considered crimes if they were not pregnant like taking legal drugs prescribed by their doctor, having a miscarriage, addiction, getting into a car accident, and even falling down the stairs.

This is criminalization. And it disproportionately targets Black, brown, and Indigenous people  -- people are being punished simply for not conforming to stereotyped notions of what constitutes good motherhood and parenting.

Consequently, pregnant people are forced to live in fear that an abortion, miscarriage, stillbirth, or simply doing or not doing something during pregnancy could lead to arrest, prosecution, prison sentences, allegations of child abuse, neglect, loss of parental rights, death and more.

Because pregnancy and all of its potential outcomes -- birth, abortion, miscarriage, stillbirth are personal matters, they are medical matters, but they are certainly NOT criminal matters.

My task was to design a wordmark as well as a monogram for the campaign and to visualize selected key points by creating collages.
Thank you for viewing.
