We are a team of strong humans dedicated to preserving access to reproductive healthcare for everyone. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of life makes for a stronger community. We create inclusive strength events where all individuals are welcome to participate and celebrate our individual and collective strengths.

We stand up from a tough squat like we stand with Planned Parenthood. Join us Saturday November 9, 2019 at The MET, where lifters will make three attempts to achieve their heaviest squat. 

Each participant will fundraise with a goal of $1 raised for every pound they lift. So if Danielle lifts 200 pounds, they will attempt to raise $200 for Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates.

"As the organizing, advocacy, and electoral arm of Planned Parenthood Southeast, Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates (PPSEA) engages in electoral activities, including voter education and mobilization. We believe elected officials should support policies and programs that help women and their families make responsible choices about the prevention of unintended pregnancies and plan for healthy families. PPSEA works to educate and mobilize the public and elect lawmakers who support these policies." - from the PPSEA website

"Planned Parenthood Southeast believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout our service area, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual's income, marital status, race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being. We believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual's right to privacy. We further believe that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life and strong family relationships." - from the PPSE website

Your donation supports the lifters participating on November 9th. It tells them, I AM WITH YOU, whether or not you can be present at the event. This donation helps PPSEA to educate and lobby on behalf of women’s health, and work to elect candidates who support family planning and the full range of reproductive health care.
