Planned Parenthood 2016 Annual Awards Luncheon Dallas
Proceeds from the Annual Awards Luncheon directly support Planned Parenthood’s essential healthcare and health education services to women, men, and young people in Central and North Texas. The 2016 Luncheon is co-chaired by Amy Isom, Gwen Parker, and Abigail Sinwell.
This year’s keynote speaker is Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and daughter of Ann Richards, the 45th Governor of Texas.
Cecile Richards leads a movement that has worked for nearly 100 years to build a healthier and safer world for women, men, and young people. Since joining Planned Parenthood in 2006, she has expanded the organization’s advocacy for access to healthcare and ensured that Planned Parenthood played a pivotal role in shaping healthcare coverage and services for women under the Affordable Care Act. Under her leadership, Planned Parenthood has doubled the number of its supporters to more than 7 million.
