Actively Stand Up

CACTA believes that we can help and contribute in many other ways in addition to financial help and we ask our beneficiaries to give us actions that we can all get involved with.

Individual Giving Officer,
Jennie Van Den Boogaard,
has put together a few things that we can do to help.

Speak Out Against Hate

Planned Parenthood’s patients are from all walks of life. They are immigrants, Muslim, Black, Latino, and LGBTQ — and they all deserve access to health care in a safe and welcoming place. Wherever you are, declare your rejection of hate and your solidarity with these communities. Show that you believe every single person is deserving of respect, dignity, and equal rights under the law.

Tweet Your Defiance – and Follow Us 

Use social media to show that you reject hate and refuse to let the next administration roll back the rights we’ve fought so hard to secure. Tweet your defiance along with the hashtag #WeWontGoBack. 

Follow Planned Parenthood Illinois Action on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay in the loop on actions you can take to support us and our partners.

Mission Statement: A Reason for Being

Planned Parenthood believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual's income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, 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.

Based on these beliefs, and reflecting the diverse communities within which we operate, the mission of Planned Parenthood is

  • to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings which preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual
  • to advocate public policies which guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services
  • to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality
  • to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bioethical, behavioral, and social implications
