Description of Organization:

Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is the nation’s leading women’s health care provider, educator, and advocate, serving women, men, teens and families. For over 100 years, PPFA has done more than any other organization in the United States to improve women’s health and safety, prevent unintended pregnancies, and advance the right and ability of individuals and families to make informed and responsible health care decisions. Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) has long been committed to increasing civic engagement in the Latino community — the nation’s fastest growing demographic and one that faces many obstacles to health care access.

The Raíz program is Planned Parenthood’s national effort to work with the Latino community on fights for reproductive health, sex education, and access to care. In the first year of the Raíz program, organizers worked on voter registration, Medicaid expansion, immigration reform, and passed a comprehensive sex education reform.
