In the spring of 2007, Carrie, a mother of two, stepped forward to tell her story. Her local Kroger pharmacy refused to stock EC.
She called us and wanted to take action. We helped Carrie's story garner media attention, including coverage on MSNBC and by the Associated Press. Thousands of activists called on Kroger to make sure all of its stores in 19 states had EC.
The Kroger Co. agreed to require all of its pharmacies to stock emergency contraception. They even provided an "800" number for our activists in case they experienced problems.
Carrie's story is a reminder. One person can make a difference.
