Planned Parenthood Mar Monte Stands with the Black Community

Racism pervades every aspect of our lives. It goes beyond the individual and individual actions. Racism exists in our public institutions, work spaces, schools, online, and within health care. Planned Parenthood is not exempt from this. It is important to look inward into how white systems of oppression continue to show up in the spaces we fill. We are being called to stand with the Black community against racism, oppression, and inequity. We urge our supporters to join us in the effort to dismantle the culture of white supremacy.

We acknowledge our history, and will continue to learn and work towards being a more inclusive organization. Planned Parenthood Mar Monte stands with the Black community.

In solidarity,
