Meet a new ACT member!
Logan Snow is a community organizer and reproductive rights activist. Born and raised in Bennington, Vermont, she is passionate about making the place she calls home better for all. Logan truly loves community organizing and always approaches her organizing through an equity lens. During the pandemic, Logan started Planned Parenthood of Northern New England’s “Menstrual Products for All”’ initiative, which provided free menstrual products through mutual aid drop spots around southern Vermont. The project evolved to host over 50 locations throughout Vermont and eventually shifted to Planned Parenthood health centers in 2022, with Vermont becoming the first in the nation to provide free menstrual products at each Planned Parenthood health center in Vermont.
Why are you an ACT Member? Why do you work to support healthy youth?
I’m an ACT Member because I love the work ACT does. I grew up in Bennington and know how important this organization and the work that is being done is. I work to support healthy youth because they are our future and I want to do everything I can to make this community and our state a better, more tolerant and accepting place for them.
What do you appreciate most about the Bennington community?
The people. We are so fortunate to have so many people working on so many intersecting issues and trying to make our community better for all who call it home. I feel incredibly fortunate to share this space and work with them.
What are some ways you show care to the young people in your life?
I check in on them, listen to their concerns, celebrate their wins with them and validate their experiences.

What are you doing to support your health and wellness lately?
Resting. I don’t think our society prioritizes resting enough so I’ve been listening to my body and resting when it feels right.
