OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION - RESOURCES AND LINKS TO LEARN AND TAKE ACTION

 

Read I’m the Head of Planned Parenthood. We’re Done Making Excuses for Our Founder. via the NY Times, an op-ed from Alexis McGill Johnson, the president and chief executive of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. We must reckon with Margaret Sanger’s association with white supremacist groups and eugenics, and we hope our volunteers and supporters join us in this work.

 

Alexis McGill Johnson called for us to lend more support to intersecting issues, especially to organizations led by and focusing on issues that impact Black women and other women of color as well as trans and nonbinary people. Here are some resources to get started:

  • Learn more about reproductive justice from the largest national multi-ethnic reproductive justice organization, SisterSong.
  • Support the Transgender Law Center, the largest national trans-led organization advocating self-determination for all people, and Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement, which works at local and national levels to achieve the collective liberation of trans, queer, and gender nonconforming Latinxs.
