Planned Parenthood fights to ensure that all people have access to high-quality and affordable health care, regardless of race, income, geography, immigration status or gender identity — no matter what. That is why Planned Parenthood’s Raíz program is committed to breaking down barriers in accessing health care in the Latinx community. The Raíz program is about more than just health. It’s about justice, knowledge, and power.

Raíz: By Latinxs, and For Latinxs

Since 2014, the Raíz (Spanish for “root”) program has worked to build sustainable, community-organizing teams in mutual partnership with Latinx communities, by Latinxs and for Latinxs.

  • Raíz organizers, fellows, and volunteers are from the communities they serve. They are people from the community who work with their community.

  • “Latinx” is a gender-inclusive and non-binary term used to describe the people Raíz serves. Raíz aims to build power among everyone in the Latinx community, regardless of gender.

  • Raíz’s local organizers and fellows are located in about 15 states. They work with Planned Parenthood affiliates and community partners to develop volunteer leaders, bring attention to the issues affecting their communities, and push for public policies that truly represent the Latinx community and protect access to health care. See a day in the life of a Raíz organizer.
