17 on Pink is a grassroots response to Susan G. Komen “for the Cure’s” decision to cease funding for women’s health by ending grants to Planned Parenthood.
WE WILL RESPOND!
170,000 women were helped by Komen funding at Planned Parenthood sites. Let’s show Planned Parenthood and local cancer organizations what we think about Komen’s decision to gamble with women’s health. Participate in 17 on Pink and add your voice, and your financial contribution to support comprehensive care and reproductive justice for all women.
GOAL 1 : Raise direct donations from 170 individuals to
Planned Parenthood and Breast Cancer Action.
GOAL 2:Raise direct donations from 170 individuals to women’s cancer
community organizations and women’s health organizations
that do not punish women foe choosing legal medical procedures.
GOAL 3: Educate myself and the community attracted to this project
about the history of Komen’s Vice-President, Karen Handel and
learn about issues affecting women’s health and discrimination in health funding.
How it Works:
Donate $17, $71, $170, or a donation ending in .17
