Karissa Vogel

Karissa Vogel serves as Eastern Promotions Coordinator, running social media and promoting CCBR programs throughout Eastern Canada. In addition, Karissa is often out on the streets leading outreach and changing minds on abortion. After completing the four-month summer internship program in 2021, she joined CCBR as an Eastern Outreach Intern, leading activism and assisting with social media and various projects – including serving as a team leader in the 2022 Summer internship. Karissa has a certificate of Theology and Philosophy from Gillespie Academy. 

Karissa grew up in a large, pro-life family and has been convicted on the issue of abortion since she was young. Growing up she wanted to do something about the reality of abortion but wasn’t sure how. After several people she knew did internships with CCBR, Karissa saw an effective way of changing minds and saving lives and decided that she wanted to be a part of the work that CCBR was doing. During her summer internship with CCBR, she thought more and more about the difference that one person could make in the pro-life movement and how she could change her plans to help make a difference. In November 2021, Karissa joined the team and has been working for CCBR ever since.
