Doris Towery, Vice President of Development for Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon, will present an overview of Planned Parenthood: Past, Present and Future" Her presentation will include information on the structure of PP, history, available services, funding, political de-funding efforts and recent controversy seen on Fox . We will then have a discussion. The same Tea Party types that continue to mix church & state have made Planned Parenthood a target, so we should be very interested in hearing from Doris. There will be a way to donate for those that are interested. PLEASE NOTE because of the congestion at the Historical Armory due to AIFF.....this will be at The Haven, 1970 Ashland St, Ashland OR.
