Friends in Adoption Stands with Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson

—By Deirdre Graham, Community Outreach and Development Manager
Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson’s annual
Winter Party. It was a beautiful event attended by some of the incredible staff of Planned
Parenthood Mohawk Hudson (PPMH) as well as many gracious donors.
Throughout the night we were privileged to hear from Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson’s
CEO Bowman Kim Atkins as well as Chair of the Board for PPMH, Joyce Elliot. Both spoke
passionately about the hardworking team of PPMH and championed the legacy of the
organization nationally.
We were also honored to hear from Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards who shared
inspirational words with the crowd. Ms. Richards, who recently announced she would be
stepping down from her position in Planned Parenthood, released a video with moving
sentiments. She addressed her audiences with dedication and sincerity: “To all of you who
count on Planned Parenthood, know that this organization will be here for you—no matter where
you live, how much money you make, who you love, or where you come from.”
Friends in Adoption is so grateful for the collaborative work we get to do with Planned
Parenthood. We strongly believe in empowering the pregnant women and individuals we work
with to make informed decisions—and we could not do the work that we do without the help
from the amazing Planned Parenthood team. As a pro-choice adoption agency we believe now,
more than ever before, it is imperative to stand proudly with the organizations like Planned
Parenthood that provide access to safe, reliable reproductive healthcare to communities locally,
and nationwide.
