Become an intern or a volunteer: UHPP is looking for committed students and volunteers to assist the UHPP staff in many departments including education, public affairs, development, communications and marketing. Click here for more information.
Become a defender: Sign up as a Defender and we'll be in touch with everything you need to help out at critical moments. Some weeks, we'll ask you to help flood a key member of Congress with calls. Sometimes it might be writing a letter, showing up for a rally, or inviting friends over for an emergency meetup. Whatever it is, it will be what's truly needed, right when it's needed most — and we'll give you the detailed instructions you need to take action. Click here to sign up as part of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
Mobilize your campus: Students at many local campuses are working to promote sexual health and responsibility, and to mobilize other students to take action to protect women's health. Click here for more information on joining our Planned Parenthood Generation Action groups!
