"One of the best reasons (among many) to join the President's Council is the terrific Speakers Series. The Council presents many timely and interesting speakers that aim to educate and entertain on important Planned Parenthood issues." – Marcie Rothman, President's Council member
The President's Council is a vital group of dedicated supporters committed to sustaining Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest's ability to serve women, men, and families in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties.
President's Council members are our affiliate's most generous annual contributors, giving $1,000 or more each year, and providing the insight, guidance, and core support that fuels every one of our services — from Pap smears and ultrasounds to teacher trainings and security.
In addition to special insider reports and invitations to private events, members of the President's Council who give more than $2,500 annually receive invitations to our renowned Speakers Series events. Held in local homes three times a year, these intimate gatherings allow members to meet like-minded supporters and hear from a wide range of experts on issues affecting Planned Parenthood.
In recent years, these speakers have included best-selling authors and collegiate professors, a sexuality education teacher, a legal expert on reproductive justice, and a California state assemblymember.
