Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund, delivered a barn-burner of a keynote address to kick of the 2015 PA Progressive Summit this past Friday night.
Richards, made an impassioned call for progressives to stand together under the banner of justice and refuse to marginalize some issues at the expense of others. There are few people in the progressive movement that carry the unifying torch of the progressive movement as well and as boldly as Richards.
Spoken like the organizer she is, Richards told the crowd of over 800 people:
There are just three things that we have to do to build progressive power. Number one: when we organize people to be their own fiercest champions. The second is when we stand together, not alone. And, the third is when we’re bold and unapologetic about what we stand for.
