Join us to celebrate the first 100 years of Care. 

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.  Through every challenge, Planned Parenthood has become stronger.  We're going to use that strength to lead in the coming days, months, and years for the patients who rely on us.


We talk about women’s strengths, their resilience, their needs and how we are going to meet them. We talk about the right to agency over their own futures. And we stand always for this simple truth: A woman’s pelvis is not public property, and no one can make it so.
— Anna Quindlen
