Join Us in the Fight for Reproductive Justice!
MFP Community Organizer Cait Vaughan helps Mainers stay connected to opportunities for education, civic participation, and collective action for reproductive health, rights, and justice.
Sign up to join our Action Alert network! We’ll keep you in the loop about opportunities to testify in public hearings at the state house or call your local representatives about relevant bills, as well as upcoming grassroots actions and public events. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Organizing is one way we put our values into action. Acting collectively and strategically, we CAN achieve significant cultural and political shifts.
There are lots of ways to get involved:
Partner with us!
Work with us to organize a public forum, presentation, or workshop in your town or with an existing community group. Right now, we are particularly looking for folks willing to host small group or public presentations on MFP’s bold work in the areas of abortion care and improving access. Contact Cait to brainstorm!
Become a trained MFP advocacy volunteer.
We need folks who are willing to give their time and talents on a semi-regular basis to engage in conversations “beyond the choir.” Cait will work one-on-one and in cohorts to provide training and ongoing support as you learn new organizing skills, or brush up on old ones you haven’t used in a while!
Become a storyteller advocate.
Sharing personal stories is one of the most effective ways to shift public opinion and lobby lawmakers. It’s also a powerful method of combating stigma around reproductive health and abortion. Begin by sharing why you support MFP via our online story bank, and consider if you’d like to share your stories via other platforms, such as Letters to the Editor, our MFP blog, and more. We can help you raise your voice in whatever ways make you comfortable.
Start something new!
As new supporters join, our efforts evolve with the unique experiences you bring to the work. If there’s something you’re excited about that isn’t listed here, contact Cait to talk about it!
