We Demand Justice

Every system that governs us — education, policing, transportation, housing, health care, and more — needs accountability. And until Black people can go for a walk, bird watch, live their lives, or protest the violence against the Black community without the fear of violence, until the systems of racialized oppression and dehumanization are transformed, Black people won't be free. And if Black people aren't free, none of us are.

From Planned Parenthood Leadership

If we do not have the right to bodily autonomy to live our lives — or to protest the violence against our lives — without the fear of violence, we can never achieve justice, let alone reproductive freedom.

- Alexis McGill Johnson, Planned Parenthood Action Fund President and CEO


Dismantling the systems of oppression that invade the communities we serve requires that we demand justice, hold offenders accountable, and have difficult conversations inside and outside our organization.

- Yamelsie Rodríguez, Advocates of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri President and CEO 


We stand with #BlackLivesMatter and the protestors throughout the country who are demanding an end to a public health crisis: police brutality.

- Dr. Brandon Hill, Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes President and CEO
