Akia, Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and Manager at Planned Parenthood in Brooklyn Park, recently told us:

I did my clinic rotation at the Minneapolis clinic three years ago, and I fell in love with the patients, the environment, the education, and uncovered my passion for working with young women and caring for them. Now that I’m working for Planned Parenthood, I have been so amazed at what is offered and how great of an organization it is. What we do here is such a major accomplishment toward overcoming barriers and helping to reduce teenage pregnancy.

My patients motivate me. Throughout my schooling and training and the more I work here, I see that these women and men need providers like us to guide and educate them on reproductive and sexual health!

If someone was nervous about coming to Planned Parenthood, I would tell them, “Come on in, you will get nonjudgmental, unbiased care in a safe and secure environment with compassionate, supportive, and helpful staff! We will make sure you leave our doors well informed and feeling independent and relieved about the care you received."

Solidarity Day

Every year on Good Friday, anti-Planned Parenthood protesters descend on the Planned Parenthood clinic at Vandalia Street in Saint Paul to shame and intimidate patients. They can have their protest. We’re going to have a rally. Join us Friday, April 19 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. to stand in solidarity and celebration as we proudly show the world that Planned Parenthood is here for good. RSVP in advance and you'll get an exclusive button when you check in!

Fight Back Against the Title X Gag Rule

The Trump-Pence administration's Title X gag rule would block access to birth control, cancer screenings, and other basic care that Planned Parenthood patients rely on. Take action by a sending message to the elected officials that represent you to encourage them to vote in favor of HF 1011 / SF 1293, a bill that will increase funding for the state-based Family Planning Special Projects (FPSP) grant and help offset the impact of this dangerous rule.
