Plant Parenthood: Supporting Planned Parenthood

By Catcall Staff

Let’s talk about sex. And reproductive rights. And affordable access to healthcare. And body autonomy. And ALL the other things Planned Parenthood stands for.

Join us on August 25 at 7pm for a Catcall Collective meetup at PlantKC (3914 Washington St., Kansas City, Missouri) focused on how to help our local chapter of Planned Parenthood Great Plains. Come for conversation, information on how to get involved, networking with other bad ass feminists, and other Planned Parenthood fundraisers to look forward to. We’ll hear from PlantKC and their upcoming PP fundraiser, Brandon Love of Crumble Co. on why he decided to have his business vehemently support PP, and from other guests to be announced soon.

Catcall back at the patriarchy with us!

Founder Brandon Love and I met when I interviewed him for a story for The Pitch (my amazing full-time job where I serve as Digital Editor for KC’s local alternative magazine). His story is one filled with ups and downs; when a bad breakup left him depressed, instead of ending his life he turned his energy towards making a company that helps bring joy. Crumble Co. also has a Facebook support group–Facebook’s largest 24/7 support group for mental health–called Crumble Family, where 20,000 members can share experiences and compassion involving their own mental health.
