New Program for Student Activists

Activist Boot Camp
A New, Free Program Offered by Planned Parenthood of New York City

Planned Parenthood of New York City is launching a new activist program that some of the members of your student organization might be interested in.

The program is called Activist Boot Camp and it trains students how to become effective activists for the reproductive rights movement. It is completely free of charge and we come to you to conduct the trainings. You simply provide 15-30 people and the space for the trainings to take place in.

These trainings are specifically for the reproductive rights movement, but touch on many points that are helpful for any activist work you might be interested in such as: recruiting and retaining new group members, organizing successful advocacy campaigns and confidently talking about tricky topics.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in or you want more information, you can email me, Camille Hartmann, at Camille.hartmann@ppnyc.org or Melissa Lee at Melissa.lee@ppnyc.org .

Also - if you know of any other students or organizations that would be interested in our boot camps, feel free to pass the information along.

We are happy to send you hard copies of the flier if helpful.

Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
