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.

Called to the Cause

Called to Planned Parenthood's cause
Dr. Sierra Washington has been called to Planned Parenthood’s cause.

“Nobody works at Planned Parenthood by accident. Everybody is there because of their call to the mission.” Doctor Washington’s approach to medicine is shaped by the years she lived and worked in Africa, caring for women who were willing to risk their lives to control their own reproductive destiny. This is her story of care.
