VT PAC Awards Shumlin, UVM VOX President

October 16th, 2013

Many thanks to everyone who helped pack the house at this year’s Sex, Politics, and Cocktails VT PAC fundraiser at the Farhmouse Tap & Grill in Burlington! Close to a hundred VT PAC supporters joined us in honoring Governor Peter Shumlin and University of Vermont VOX president Jess Fuller with this year’s ‘Champion for Choice’ award.

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England CEO Meagan Gallagher presented Governor Peter Shumlin the ‘Champion for Choice’ award for his hard work moving health care reform forward in Vermont and ensuring that thousands of Vermonters have access to reproductive health care. His administration has made expanding access to care a top priority and Vermont is once again leading the way in innovative and effective methods of health care delivery.

Under his leadership, Vermont women and men have unprecedented access to family planning services through the Access plan, the new health insurance options in the online marketplace include abortion coverage and none of the national strategies to chip away at abortion access have gained any traction.

He stands behind his fellow elected officials who defend reproductive rights.  After the reproductive rights rising in Texas, he called Wendy Davis to congratulate her on her courageous stand on behalf of Texas women.

We couldn’t ask for a better champion.

PPNNE Public Affairs director Jill Krowinski presented Jess Fuller, a University of Vermont student who founded VOX: Voices for Planned Parenthood at UVM the ‘Champion for Choice: Grassroots Advocate’ award. Fuller spoke about the impact that VOX has had upon the community within the two years since it was founded. VOX has launched photo campaigns, campus outreach, and even increased student STD testing by 50% with it’s spring 2013 ‘Get Yourself Tested’ campaign. Numerous State Representatives, State Senators, Governor Kunin and engaged community members caught up with one another and came together to support Planned Parenthood and honor this year’s ‘Champion for Choice’ award recipients.

Many thanks for all of the support and can’t wait ’till next year!!!!!!
