Planned Parenthood Advocates Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley invites you to join us at The Launch Party: A Night for Your Rights, to be held on Thursday, May 19th at 6:00 pm. Your attendance makes it possible for us to meet our advocacy goals and enables us to endorse and mobilize in support of local leaders who will champion the expansion of reproductive health care services in our community.
This year we’re honoring Vicki Cowart, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, who will accept the Act Award for Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountain’s Act of Defiance – refusing to allow anti-abortion extremism to close their doors. She will accept this award on behalf of the staff at PPRM whose Colorado Springs health center survived an assault by a lone gunman last November. We honor Vicki and the Colorado Springs health center team for inspiring us by doing the right thing for their community in the face of violent adversity.
We also welcome Kathy Kneer, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California (PPAC), the public affairs office for Planned Parenthood affiliates throughout the state. Ms. Kneer will help us understand the current statewide climate, how our local community fits in the larger picture, and where we can best leverage our voices and resources in 2016 and beyond.
We hope to see you there!
We kindly ask that you RSVP by May 9, 2016.
Location provided upon RSVP.
