Patients to Advocates Fellowship Program
If you have had one or more abortions and live in Ohio and you would like to get involved in the movement for abortion access, and reproductive health, rights, and justice, you might be a great candidate for the Patients to Advocates fellowship program. Patients to Advocates is a paid, year-long leadership development program that prepares people who have had abortions for civic engagement around reproductive health, rights, and justice. The program was created as a collaboration among NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation, New Voices for Reproductive Justice, Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and us at Preterm. Fellows participate in educational modules and utilize their knowledge in legislative visits, door to door canvassing, panel discussions, and media interactions. Each cohort is comprised of people who have had abortions from various racial and socioeconomic backgrounds. Fellows have been featured in national and local media outlets such as Fusion, Huffington Post, and Vice.
