My mother and I went to a luncheon sponsored by the National Partnership for Women & Families last week, and we sat next to two women who work for the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA). We chatted for a bit, and they told us about their non-profit organization. NFPRHA is a membership organization that provides access to voluntary, comprehensive, and culturally sensitive family planning and reproductive health care services. They were founded in 1971, and they have been helping women for over 40 years. NFPRHA focuses on helping low-income families and the uninsured. They represent the nation's family planning providers—nurses, nurse practitioners, administrators and other key health care professionals. For more than 40 years, NFPRHA members have provided high-quality preventive health care services in thousands of health centers to millions of women and men annually. I donated $150 to the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association for my June donation.
The luncheon for the National Partnership was amazing, by the way. We had a great time listening to all of the inspirational speakers. Hillary Clinton was a phenomenal speaker. She is just captivating. Our table was one of the farthest from Clinton (VIPs, we are not). It was still neat to be in the same room as Hillary Clinton! There were several other great speakers at the luncheon. Sandra Fluke was there, and she is featured on the cover of Ms. Magazine for their Spring/Summer issue. I went to pick up a copy at Barnes & Noble yesterday, but they were sold out. Kind of annoying, but it's nice to know that Ms. Magazine is selling well!
