  2. Screen a film: Use the videos in our library, or others.
  3. Host a hands-on workshop: MSFC can provide your chapter with supplies for up to 50 students to participate in one of the following workshops. Contact to receive the request form, students must submit their event materials requests a minimum of 4 weeks in advance if they’re in the US, and a minimum of 6 weeks in advance if they’re in Canada. There is no charge for ordering supplies.
    • Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) with papayas: Practice MVA technique in a hands-on setting. Your chapter must obtain papayas (purchase them using student activism funding, your trust account, or look for in-kind donations from local grocery stores), and then submit a request to for MVA supplies and presentation materials.
    • IUD Insertion: Practice with a variety of IUDs on plastic uterine models.
