Vermont's Community Action Teams

PPVTAF's long term success in protecting and advancing access to sexual and reproductive health care & education requires the organized leadership and activism of Vermont's communities.

What are Community Action Teams?

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

-African Proverb

Community Action Teams (CATs) are organized groups of volunteers located throughout the state that work closely with PPVTAF staff to conduct strategic actions rooted in local, state, and national advocacy and electoral campaigns.  These groups of like-minded community members are committed to assisting with:

  • Educating and organizing the public;
  • Registering, informing, and mobilizing voters;
  • Promoting policies helping people access health care;
  • During elections, promoting political candidates advocating for Americans’ sexual and reproductive rights;
  • Standing in solidarity with social justice partners to fight back against hate and discrimination.

Each CAT is led and cared for by volunteers and they’re currently recruiting!  We are looking for individuals with all types of skills, abilities and experience levels. If you are new to social activism, this is a great first step!
