The campaign, which was active during the months leading up to the referendum on the Eighth Amendment in May 2018, was the main civil society organisation advocating for a Yes vote. During its existence, Together For Yes generated a huge amount of digital content, including campaign branding, an official website, press releases, merchandise design and more.
