PPMH Annual Celebration 2013 - Including Heart to Heart Festivities
Thursday, November 7, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
Meet Sandra Fluke on November 7!
You are invited to the 2013 Annual Celebration. This highly anticipated event will feature women's activist Sandra Fluke. In addition, we will be introducing PPMH's new President/CEO Kim Bowman, and presenting awards to two remarkable individuals, Roberta Steiner and Diane Wilkinson, for their community activism on behalf of Planned Parenthood.
This year's featured speaker, Sandra Fluke, came to national attention in 2012 when she was prohibited from testifying before a House committee about the importance of affordable and accessible birth control for women. Instead, the committee heard from a male-only panel discussing women's reproductive health---a stunning image that sparked a national debate. Eventually Ms. Fluke was allowed to speak to a much smaller group of House members, but she was then subjected to inflammatory remarks by national talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. Despite these personal attacks, Ms. Fluke has been unwavering in her strong, principled advocacy for women's reproductive health.
Guest will enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres, live music and an inspiring program. All proceeds from the night will benefit PPMH.
