A Benefit for Planned Parenthood with Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem) x Barbie Bertish x L&L&L Record Club
Planned Parenthood and Black Flamingo are hosting an event benefiting Planned Parenthood of New York City, specifically the Planned Parenthood of New York City Action Fund.
The mission of PPNYC is to empower individuals to make independent, informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive lives. They provide information and health care, and promote public policies that make those services available to all. Planning is Power.
Planned Parenthood of New York City has a health center in each borough and serve over 60,000 patients each year. They reach an additional 25,000 people through their educational program. The first Planned Parenthood ever opened was in Brooklyn in 1916.
