Encouraging upstream solutions to preventable systemic problems


Join the conversation!

Campaign Mission

This awareness campaign is born from the issuance of the Dobbs decision, and its subsequent overturn of Roe v Wade. Family to Family Support Network has always had a unique perspective in their work of training healthcare professionals to better serve families and varying patient populations.
Now more than ever, there is a critical need for transparency in pregnancy options education, community collaboration, and the implementation of upstream policies both within the public and private sectors. All aspects are needed to address commonplace systemic shortcomings and solve preventable problems at the root. 
Coming Together for Families addresses these needs by purging problematic and divisive rhetoric. This awareness campaign aims to mend the seam between communities and encourage individuals and organizations alike to roll up their sleeves and fill the gaps for the common good.

Weekly Special Guest Interviews

In the Coming Together for Families Campaign, Founder Rebecca Vahle interviews an array of thought leaders – from CEOs to healthcare leaders, from Executive Directors to policy makers, from healthcare consumers to healthcare providers – on what needs to happen now to better support parents, guardians, babies, and children in a post-Roe world.
What to expect: 
  • Insights from differing perspectives
  • Sharing of concerns
  • Discussion of solutions
