The state of Missouri requested proposals to market and raise awareness for their Alternatives to Abortion (the Missouri A2A program).
While their program had existed, they knew they needed help reaching abortion-vulnerable women—women who would parent if only they had the resources and support to make it possible. By effectively reaching these women, they knew they could provide more services and resources to those who needed them the most.
In addition to raising awareness, the evolving digital and political landscape led to increased Big Tech censorship and advertising disapproval. They needed an agency that knew how to navigate Big Tech’s rules to get ads out to the women of Missouri.
