Q: What do PPNC and RBG have in common?

A: Incredible strength...a clear vision of equality and human rights…and a birthday!

That’s right, this year, both PPNC and Supreme Court Justice (and social justice icon) Ruth Bader Ginsburg are 86 years old! And this calls for a celebration! Please join us on Wednesday, October 16th for our annual Fall Luncheon to honor our rich past, our powerful present, and our incredible future!

Our keynote speaker will be Irin Carmon, author of Notorious RBG and a senior correspondent at New York Magazine and CNN contributor.

This year, we are thrilled to be honoring our very own President & CEO, JoAnn Smith. During her tenure, JoAnn has proudly led our affiliate in overcoming numerous hurdles and realizing even more milestones for the benefit of our patients and communities. As we embrace our next chapter — embarking on a merger with four other affiliates in New York State to become Planned Parenthood of Greater New York — we are thrilled to recognize JoAnn’s legacy at PPNC, and celebrate her upcoming role as an Executive VP in the new, larger organization!

Plus, as we move forward with our merger with four other New York State affiliates to become Planned Parenthood of Greater New York (PPGNY), you’ll hear from our future CEO, Laura McQuade, who will share her bold vision for our path forward.
