Policy Campaigns

Marj served as lead consultant for the California Breast and Gynecological Cancer Treatment Task Force. This statewide collaboration among breast cancer, public health and women’s organizations created a program that has grown to be $2 billion public health program providing life-saving treatment to thousands of women each year.

Marj served as Campaign Director for the JustCARE campaign. justCARE: Campus Action for Reproductive Equity builds student power to lift barriers to abortion care on California University campuses.  While campus health centers provide quality health care at low or no cost, no campus clinics in the state now provide abortion care, and many do not have an abortion provider close by. Once a student has made the decision to end a pregnancy, it can be hard to raise the money or find transportation. The State of California now requires public university student health centers to offer the abortion pill on college campuses, which is a safe and effective way to end a pregnancy up to 10 weeks, and would improve the access to abortion in California.
