SuperShero: Amy Raspatello

Amy Raspatello inducted into the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude in December 2016 for being the one to show up first and to leave last. That’s how I think of her commitment to reproductive and sexual health. By the time you arrive, she’s already there – creating the safe space. She’s the steady one to answer questions and nudge the processes forward. She’s there at the end – smart, strong and steady. Amy shares her heart and brain in many spaces. You’d find her for many years at Planned Parenthood. She is now a moderator at PrEP Facts on Facebook. Thank you, Amy, for being the one we can count on.

About the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude

“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” David Orr

I deeply admire those who “live well in their places.” The ordinary and the unsung who offer to the world the very best parts of themselves without expectation.

This is a beautiful expression of love in her calm, persistent, generous manner – offering a ripple of change (a metamorphosis) to the world.

Inductees to the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude are caped in recognition of their contributions to a love-filled world.
