Robin Chappelle Golston, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts:
"In our state, Planned Parenthood has fought for over 100 years to ensure women and all New Yorkers are equal and in control of their own bodies. We will not stop until all women are treated with dignity and respect - in the workplace, in accessing health care, and in their everyday lives. No one is above the law and there is never any excuse for abusive or coercive behavior. While we continue to grapple with the shocking pervasiveness of violence in our society, it is heartening to know that the #MeToo movement is making a difference by shining a light in dark corners and empowering those who have been victimized, harassed, and shamed to come forward and share their truths."
Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts is a non-profit, statewide organization dedicated to protecting and expanding access to a full range of reproductive health care services. It represents New York’s Planned Parenthood affiliates and works to protect and expand access to reproductive health care for all New Yorkers.
