A century ago, our founders united with a shared purpose. They recognized the immense potential of empowering women through access to birth control, enabling them to take charge of their bodies and destinies. Now, 100 years later, we have gathered leaders and changemakers from across our affiliate to reflect on the legacy of PPSNE as we set our sights to the future.

"This milestone is a testament to the dedication of our staff, the support of our community, and our enduring commitment to advancing health equity. I am so proud when I reflect on the incredible impact of our movement over the span of a century. We have made tremendous progress towards creating more opportunities for people to make their own private medical decisions, access the care they need, and have control over their lives and futures – and we know there is so much more to do to realize our vision. We will continue to deliver on our promise of providing care, no matter what, for the next 100 years and beyond."

—Amanda Skinner, president and CEO
