Moxie is powerful. Moxie is part of what pushes us forward, boldly driving change and progress.

Time and time again, Planned Parenthood supporters exude moxie. Despite being in the thick of our toughest battles in the movement for reproductive freedom, Nebraskans are rising above. Because of supporters—like you—our community can come to Planned Parenthood North Central States to access vital health care, innovative research, inclusive sex education, and dedicated advocacy.  

Melanie Morrissey Clark and her daughter, Sophie, are thrilled to chair MOXIE and represent the generations that continue to step up and commit to accessible sexual and reproductive health care. Join us as we come together to celebrate our strength and tenacity and take space to center our movement towards equitable access to necessary health care.
