New York - Today marked Planned Parenthood’s 100-year anniversary. Planned Parenthood traces its origins to Brooklyn, New York, where it was founded on the revolutionary idea that women should have the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives and fulfill their dreams. Planned Parenthood grew into a national organization working to ensure access to reproductive health services for all people, regardless of income, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender expression or gender identity.
BPCLC Co-Chair Senator Liz Krueger attended their anniversary celebration and presented them with a proclamation on behalf of the BPCLC.
