Lift For Planned Parenthood
EVENT DATE: Apr 23, 2017
Lift For Planned Parenthood is the first event hosted by the Women's Strength Coalition. All proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
An estimated 1 in 5 women has relied on Planned Parenthood for care in her lifetime. Without Planned Parenthood, 2.5 million people would lose access to the preventative care they rely on each year. More than half of Planned Parenthood’s health centers are located in rural and underserved communities, where patients already deal with systemic barriers to quality healthcare.
Planned Parenthood's president, Cecile Richards, recently stated: "We plan to send a clear message to the incoming administration that millions of people across this country are prepared to fight.” The WSC is asking you to join that fight. Healthcare needs to be protected, it should be considered a fundamental right for all people, not just those living in affluent communities. It is time to stand with the organization that has stood with so many women, for so many years.
Registration for Lift For Planned Parenthood sold out in just in six days, and we’ve already raised over $1,700. The event is Sunday, April 23rd , and is generously being hosted by Brooklyn Athletic Club.
With your support, we’re hoping to raise even more money to benefit this worthy cause.
