Planning Your Event

  • For a how-to guide on event planning, download our Event Planning Guide.
  • For ideas and resources for a variety of event topics, check out our event guides.

Here are some more ideas:

  1. Organize a Lecture or panel: Contact [email protected] to access our directory of speakers. You may also contact ally organizations to get locally relevant information on reproductive health topics or find speakers for an event.
  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 [email protected] 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 [email protected] for MVA supplies and presentation materials.
    • IUD Insertion: Practice with a variety of IUDs on plastic uterine models.
    • No-Scalpel Vasectomy: Host a NSV workshop using MSFC’s models, forceps, and educational resources to supplement the workshop.
