Family Planning Advocates' 30th Annual Conference

Family Planning Advocates' 30th Annual Conference

FPA's 30th Annual Conference is an event not to be missed! Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards and actress Cynthia Nixon will highlight this year's conference on March 26 in Albany.

Morning workshops will enable participants to discuss timely reproductive rights issues ranging from emergency contraception to the impact of the 2006 elections on women's health care.

The afternoon plenary session will explore lessons and challenges facing the women's health and reproductive justice movement. World-renowned reproductive rights leaders from three countries will discuss the tenuous state of women's health around the globe.

The Annual Conference Luncheon will feature celebrities, elected officials, entertainment and surprise guests. And the day would not be complete without a gala reception to celebrate 30 years of protecting and expanding reproductive rights.

For more information and to register, call Sabrina Shulman @ (212) 274-7288.
