While she was initially drawn to this organization out of her concern for women’s and civil rights, she says that through her involvement with Planned Parenthood she has come to understand how much the organization does to help women break the cycle of poverty.As Planned Parenthood celebrates its centennial this year, Lafer and Bonner outlined the organization’s strategic vision for the next 100 years and described three main goals “to create health equity and gender equality, to foster a culture change surrounding reproductive justice and health education, and to build a powerful movement of advocates and supporters.”Bonner discussed how these goals will be translated locally, including training Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley teachers so they can better meet the new health education requirements of California’s new Healthy Youth Act.Lafer said that Planned Parenthood’s vision for the future is bold and ambitions, but that its end goal is to create “the world we deserve.”For more information about Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley, visit Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Your email address will not be published.
