Volunteer with Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood's Healthy Neighborhood Canvassing program marches on through promising recent developments in the movement to Restore Roe!

There are several upcoming opportunities to join the Healthy Neighborhood Canvassing program in La Crosse. You'll join Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin organizers and volunteers talking to  neighbors about the services Planned Parenthood provides and steps we can all  take to restore abortion access in Wisconsin.

No prior canvassing experience is necessary! Each canvass begins with a thorough training. All necessary materials (and some fun goodies) are provided and no one is asked to canvass alone. The PPWI canvassing program is perfect for new canvassers, or those who have had less than ideal past canvassing experiences, to jump (back) in with plenty of support!

Check out this testimony from Tisha, a recent new canvasser:
I was a bit nervous to go door to door to ask people about their feelings about abortion. It can bring up such strong and complicated emotions for people. I didn't want to make someone upset, but I wanted to talk to my neighbors about how they feel and if they were interested in doing more to fight for body autonomy. I felt very supported by Joella/PP. I got to work with someone who had done this before, and was pleasantly surprised by the comfortable conversations I had with neighbors. I highly recommend trying it - even if you just tag a long.
Join the Planned Parenthood -Western Wisconsin Supporters FB page. Reach out to Joella with any questions or concerns you may have. Click this link for more details and to sign up for upcoming canvasses on:
