As a member of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR), Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) joins in the mourning of Dr. Benjamin Hooks’ passing.

America lost a leader who was guided by one defining principle: doing what was right.  He led the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) with the understanding that treating all people fairly under the law would advance America.  In today’s battles — whether it’s over health care or education — we should all remember Dr. Hooks’ life and lessons.”
