In order to provide youth with referrals to unbiased pharmacies, ACT’s program participants survey and secret shop local pharmacies in Tulare County. In an effort to get the word out about Emergency Contraception, ACT volunteers become myth busters and educate one person at a time to raise community awareness.
ACT recently published Pharmacy Access: Advocacy Guide to Increasing Community Access to Emergency Contraception. The Advocacy Guide outlines ACT’s campaign and provides a step by step iteration for community based organizations to implement in their own communities.

ACT’s Pharmacy Access Campaign has received national attention through an award presented in New York City, September 2014 from the American Society for Emergency Contraception and the International Consortium for Emergency Contraception for a “bold” move in emergency contraception.
