Civil rights activist Dolores Huerta recently took to her blog, featured on the Huffington Post, to voice her strong support for the essential services Planned Parenthood provides – especially for Latinos, who make up 22 percent of patients who receive our services.
We couldn’t be more thankful for all the love and support our allies have shown us in the past few months.
In fact, you may be surprised to learn that some of our biggest supporters include quite a few of your favorite celebs. Some of those big names have taken to their social media channels to share why they stand with Planned Parenthood.
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 high school student and Planned Parenthood volunteer named Isabel who wanted to share her experience as a patient so others can understand the importance of creating safe spaces for reproductive care.
