March With Us — Locally

Since the election, Planned Parenthood has received an incredible outpouring of support. We’ve been contacted by many people who are looking to stand together for women’s rights, human rights, and justice for all.

Across the nation, marches are being organized in solidarity with the main Women’s March on Washington, which will be held January 21.

We hope that you will join Planned Parenthood staff, volunteers, and supporters at 10 a.m. on January 21 at the local San Diego Women’s March or at the Riverside Women’s March. Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest will be participating as a contingent in the San Diego Women’s March and at the Riverside Women’s March and anyone who supports human rights, civil liberties, tolerance of diversity, and compassion for our shared humanity is invited to attend.

Planned Parenthood Made Me Feel Safe

Every year, Planned Parenthood provides high-quality, affordable and compassionate care to 2.7 million women, men and young people. There is no organization that does more than we do to provide and advocate for family planning, preventive care and sex education. As the most trusted nonprofit, reproductive health care provider in the country, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our patients.

Many of our supporters are equally passionate about the work we do in their communities and have chosen to share their experiences. This is a story from a college student and Planned Parenthood volunteer named Ethan who wanted to share his experience as a patient, so others can understand the importance of creating safe spaces for reproductive care.
