What We Do: Improve Access to and Demand for
the Full Range of Contraception
All Access EKY is a collaboration between Appalshop, Kentucky Health Justice Network, and Power to Decide that works in ten Appalachian Kentucky counties to ensure young people have access to the full range of contraceptive methods. We combine storytelling, media making, youth empowerment, and community outreach to advocate for and increase access to all birth control options.
Our Service Area
All Access EKY serves the following Southeastern Kentucky counties: Floyd, Harlan, Knott, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Owsley, Perry, Pike, and Wolfe.
“Restricted Access” is a short film created by youth producers in Appalshop’s Appalachian Media Institute Summer 2019.
In the hills of Eastern Kentucky, reproductive health is a subject that is scarce and rarely talked about. In “Restricted Access”, AMI youth explore the myths surrounding birth control, gaining support from the All Access EKY program, and discuss with young adults and health professionals about their experiences with birth control.
