Activate Your Community

Activate your community and help others add their voice to the movement. Here’s how to get started:  

  • Crowdfund! Facebook allows you to easily set up a fundraiser on your personal profile page. Donate your birthday or any other occasion and help the 19 million women who still lack reasonable access to the full range of birth control methods. 

  • Become a trusted adult. Volunteer with an after-school program like Big Brothers Big Sisters of America or Boys & Girls Clubs. This is the perfect opportunity to have meaningful conversations with young people. You don’t need to know all the answers—just where to find them

  • Host a raise-your-voice event. Organizing an event can be a great way to get people in your life engaged in a cause you care about. Consider a postcard party, where your friends come over to learn about an issue and take action on the spot. Buy enough postcards and stamps for everyone and provide snacks and drinks to make it more fun. Then write to your representatives in Congress and the Senate to let them know where you stand. Pro tip: Your postcard doesn’t have to be a complaint or request; saying thanks can be a powerful way to reinforce positions your representatives take!
