Roe v. Wade Anniversary Event 
Thursday, January 27, 2022
5:30PM VIP Reception

Virtual Event

At Planned Parenthood, the health and safety of our patients, supporters, and staff are our top priority. Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, the Roe v. Wade Anniversary Event on Thursday, January 27th will be fully virtual.

We were looking forward to seeing you in-person and we hope to see you at our next available and safe opportunity. In the meantime, please join us virtually to honor and celebrate our champions and please consider supporting us during this critical year. Together, we will keep Illinois a haven for sexual and reproductive health care!

The virtual link will be sent out to guests the week of the event.
