Planned Parenthood Generation Action 

Planned Parenthood Generation Action (PPGenAction) is a movement of young people across identities and issues that organizes with, by, and for their generation in order to achieve sexual and reproductive freedom.  PPVTAF is working with student teams at the University of Vermont, Middlebury College, Castleton University, and Bennington College to help educate their fellow students, bust apathy, and create positive change on the campus, state, and national level.

Why College Advocacy is Important

Young people are a powerful force to be reckoned with.

Too often we hear that young people are apathetic and unmotivated to stand up for what they believe in.  Thankfully, just as often, this assumption is proven wrong.  In 2012, young people made up of 24% of the American electorate and 22% of us used our voice in the November election.  Now by 2020, this generation will represent 40% of the American electorate.  This generation is the largest and most diverse generation in American history.

Planned Parenthood has seen firsthand the power that young people bring to movement work and the results of that power are often unmatched among older generations. The work is often done with fewer resources and experience too.  Why is that? Some might suggest that young people approach the work unapologetic, with passion, energy, lived experience and compassion.  The story told by this generation is one that moves their peers to join the fight. 

PPVTAF is currently supporting campus teams established at the University of Vermont, Middlebury College, Castleton University, and Bennington College.  If you are a current student at one of these institutions and are considering getting involved, this is one of the best and hardest jobs you'll ever have because you get to educate others on campus about Planned Parenthood and use that education to actually create positive change for people on campus, in the state, and across the nation.  To learn more about the specific work happening on you campus or to sign up, fill out the form below.
