Join Planned Parenthood’s Community Action Team

PPAZ volunteers raising awareness

Are you tired of all the anti-choice legislation that has been passed in the Arizona legislature? Then do something about it! Planned Parenthood’s Community Action Team is in need of pro-choice advocates to help defend reproductive rights in Arizona. We’ve got two volunteer orientation dates coming up in the next few weeks.

When: Tuesday, August 31, 6:00-8:00pm
Where: PHOENIX: Planned Parenthood Admin Office

When: Tuesday, September 7, 6:00-8:00pm
Where: TUCSON: Planned Parenthood Admin Office

To attend either of these new volunteer orientations, please contact Emily, Planned Parenthood Arizona’s Advocacy Coordinator, at advocate@ppaz.org.
