1. “I Love Planned Parenthood” Storytelling Action Hour
When: Thursday, February 10th from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Join Planned Parenthood Mar Monte for a Valentine’s Day-themed Virtual Volunteer Action Hour in February. They’ll start with the prompt: “I love Planned Parenthood because…” Then, they’ll train you on how to tell your Planned Parenthood story – whether you’re a former patient or simply a supporter – to influence legislators, raise funding for services, and recruit more supporters.
They’ll also provide you with concrete actions you can take to share your story, including submitting a video, supporting a social media campaign, and sharing your story in the next volunteer newsletter. Everyone who attends will get a PP sticker in the mail for Valentine’s Day!
2. CA Capitol Week
When: Week of April 4th, 2022
Every year Planned Parenthood supporters from across California unite for an empowering advocacy event for the services we provide, the patients we care for, and the communities we serve.
This year our annual lobbying day in California is being expanded into a week-long virtual event! Join us the week of April 4th for a series of virtual events and legislative visits where we will influence policy and advocate for health equity in California. We are looking for volunteers to join virtual lobby visits with elected officials.
More details will be shared closer to the event. If you are interested in joining our virtual Capitol Week and attending lobby visits, complete the interest form to be the first to get more information. We will then email you once we have more details.
3. Get Out the Vote (GOTV) Volunteer Opportunities
It's an election year! We'll be organizing Get Out the Vote (GOTV) activities and we'll need volunteers to take action with us. GOTV activities can include phone banking, voter registration, electoral activity, and more. Make sure you're receiving emails from Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte so you can volunteer with us once details are confirmed.

5. Publicly Share Your Story
Your story can make a difference. Whether it's affordable birth control or the right to safe and legal abortion, tell us why these services matter to you. We like to uplift a broad range of stories and perspectives to help show lawmakers, the media, and supporters just what we're fighting and advocating for.
We have already heard from volunteer story-tellers throughout our service region whose willingness to share their experience is really inspiring!
