Celebrated author and journalist Anna Quindlen joins Planned Parenthood South Atlantic to celebrate a Century of Care by Planned Parenthood.

In October 1916, Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in Brooklyn, NY.  She was promptly arrested and spent her time in jail educating the other prisoners about birth control.  Throughout its 100 year history, Planned Parenthood has been at the forefront of the women’s movement and has worked tirelessly to provide reproductive health care, sexuality education, and leadership on issues affecting women’s health and rights.  Through every challenge, Planned Parenthood has become stronger.  Planned Parenthood celebrates a Century of Care with an unwavering commitment to the communities who rely upon its care.

Bestselling author, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and social critic Anna Quindlen balances the political with the personal, painting a more realistic picture of modern life by placing national affairs side by side with people’s daily lives. Millions of readers have followed her astute perspectives on today’s issues, from family, work, and education to health care, philanthropy, and social justice.

 

Sponsorships are available including an exclusive dinner with Ms. Quindlen following the event. Go to CenturyofCare.org for details.
