Originally from Allentown, PA, Joelle Logue has a BA in Political Science/English from the Pennsylvania State University and an M.A. in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has worked as a newspaper editor and advertising copywriter but her passion now is as an advocate for women’s issues.
Joelle volunteers with the Erie County Commission on the Status of Women, YWCA, and Planned Parenthood to build awareness and advocacy to improve the status of women and seek parity for women in all spheres of life. She is proud of the dedication and commitment each of these organizations takes in seeking a fair and just world when addressing women’s rights.
She believes in the guiding principles and values of each organization: the Commission on the Status of Women is dedicated to eliminating discrimination in any form that may exist on account of gender and providing equal opportunities to all citizens of Erie County. The YWCA World Service Council works for a fully inclusive world where justice, peace, health, human rights, freedom and care for the environment are promoted and sustained through women’s leadership. And Planned Parenthood is creating public policies that protect and support sexual and reproductive health, services, rights and justice.
