Through Planned Parenthood-affiliated chapters, college students across the country organize events on campus to raise public awareness about sexual health and reproductive rights, educate their peers, work with and support their local Planned Parenthood health centers, and work towards making sexual health a public health and cultural imperative.
We have eight active chapters across Massachusetts " join one now or start a new Planned Parenthood-affiliated chapter at your school!
There's power in the voices of students who want to stand up for women's health on your campus. When you organize those voices as Planned Parenthood-affiliated chapters and work together to take action for sexual and reproductive health care access, you have a force that's more powerful than if you work alone. A Planned Parenthood-affiliated chapter also serves as:
- a forum to discuss ideas
- an opportunity to learn more about yourself
- a fun way to meet new people
- an avenue to get involved with Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts
If you'd like to start a Planned Parenthood-affiliated chapter on your campus (it can be a brand new student group or an existing group that youd like to become affiliated with Planned Parenthood), call us at (617) 616-1660 x1672 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to get connected with our Planned Parenthood campus organizing coordinator. Please be sure to include the name of your college and a phone number where we can reach you.
