Crucial Services and Advocacy Initiatives”
with Kate Frisher
Kate Frisher, Advocacy Coordinator with the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts, will talk about the critical reproductive and sexual health services that Planned Parenthood provides, as well as state-level initiatives in Massachusetts to promote and advance reproductive justice. Her talk will include ways for activists to get involved and feature numerous stories from her work as a patient organizer.
Kate will be joined by a Planned Parenthood patient activist who will share her personal story about the impact of Planned Parenthood on her life and her community.
Kate Frisher joined the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts (PPAF) as an Advocacy Coordinator in September 2016. Prior to that, she was involved with PPAF for five years as a student organizer, volunteer, and patient. At Planned Parenthood, Kate takes on a mix of policy work and community organizing and manages two programs in the health center that engage patients as advocates as the organization shifts from patient-centered policy and advocacy to patient-led. Before coming to Planned Parenthood, Kate worked at Health Care For All, a non-profit dedicated to patient-centered healthcare reform, for nearly two years as a policy associate and coalition builder.

The congregation of the Community Church of Boston strives to be a wise steward of both financial and natural resources.
