Notre Dame web site posted job opening for firm that advocates for Planned Parenthood

Catholic World News - January 11, 2010

“Now we have to take our place in history, alongside President Obama and the expanded majorities in the House and Senate. Hope is only the beginning; it's time to work for the change we need,” notes a job announcement posted last April on the University of Notre Dame’s web site by the gender studies program. “Grassroots Campaigns, Inc is a progressive political consulting firm that specializes in running face-to-face citizen mobilization campaigns for political parties, candidates, and advocacy groups,’ including Planned Parenthood.

In addition:

  • Reference and Peace Studies Librarian Douglas Archer presented “Birds, Bees and Banned Books” at the Planned Parenthood of Indiana Young Leaders Power Lunch Series in September.
  • Professor Dianne M. Pinderhughes, who has served as president of the American Political Science Association, served on the local advisory council of Planned Parenthood of Champaign from 1991 to 1993.
  • Watch-- “an independent collective to inform, mentor, and support women faculty at the University of Notre Dame”-- offers links to the Center for Reproductive Law and Policy, the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which “believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual's income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence.”


  • Founded in 1842 by the Congregation of the Holy Cross, the University of Notre Dame has 11,731 students, 8,363 of them undergraduates.
