Join a Planned Parenthood-Affiliated Campus Club

Join a Gen Action club on your campus! Several of the Planned Parenthood-affiliated clubs, called Gen Action clubs, are recruiting new members and leaders. Use the links below to be connected with the leaders for the clubs at any of the below schools. 


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!

Use Planned Parenthood Mar Monte's Take Action Volunteer Toolkit to volunteer on your own time.
