Share Your Story
Story collection is a powerful communications and organizing tactic demonstrating the urgent necessity of access to reproductive, sexual, and preventive health care.
Storytellers enable others to understand who they are and why it’s important to take action to protect our rights and access. Facts can only get you so far, we need people to empathize with these issues and how they impact real life people.
We, at Planned Parenthood, are privileged to hear amazing stories from our patient advocates and supporters all the time. Now, we are asking you to share your story! Please consider sharing with us.
Was Planned Parenthood there for you when you needed medical care? Did you have an awesome volunteer experience with us? Did reproductive issues spur you to political action? Will you be personally impacted by proposed legislation?
Tell us about it! Share your story below.
If you are under 18 you need parental consent to share your story. Please email email@example.com for instructions on how to get parental consent and submit your story.
Intern with PPAM
Are you a student who is passionate about reproductive justice, healthcare, and community organizing? We are always looking for proactive individuals who are ready to get to work! Interns are vital to the PPAM team.
Our interns play leading roles in organizing campaigns and events. This is not a paper-pushing job – our interns get to experience the real, fast-paced world of community organizing.
We provide interns with opportunities for training, one-on-one mentorship, and professional networking. We work hard to ensure our interns leave with the passion, knowledge and connections they need to create change in the world.
