Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon (PPSO) is committed to positive, transformational change – and to the sustained work we will do as an organization and as individuals to actualize this urgent, much needed anti-racism work.
PPSO works every day to bring quality and non-judgmental care to communities that need it most. Institutional racism is deeply rooted in the health care structure. From higher rates of maternal deaths among black women to undiagnosed cervical cancer among Latina women to COVID-19 having a higher impact on black and brown communities; our responsibility as an intersectional organization is to confront these biases head-on. We are on the right path, but we need to do more and stretch further to create real systematic change now.
Please join us on this journey of confronting racism and being part of the solution.
