Parents and Professionals (P2) for PPSWO was created in the spring of 2012 in response to the increasing attacks on reproductive health and women’s rights in Cincinnati and across the country. P2 members are a diverse group of women and men who support comprehensive sex education, reproductive rights, and the mission of Planned Parenthood.
P2’s goals are to raise awareness about the vital health services that PPSWO provides to women, men, and teens in Southwest Ohio, to build the PPSWO supporter network, and to raise money for the PPSWO community education fund.
P2 sponsors several events throughout the year and also coordinates the PPSWO feminist book club. We always welcome new members, as well as event sponsors. To get involved, please contact Suzanne Bertuleit, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Past events include:
- Kick-off event happy hour, Japp’s Annex, June 7, 2012
- Margaret Sanger’s Birthday Party and volunteer night, September 13, 2012, PPSWO headquarters
- You Say Election, We Say vagina*: A Night of Legitimate Comedy, featuring performers from Dirty Girl Cabaret, Lovely Ladies of Improv, and OTRimprov. Below Zero Lounge, October 23, 2012
*except in Michigan, where in 2012 two female state legislators were barred from the State House Floor for saying “vagina.”

P2 in the Blogosphere
