“We cannot normalize needing to get out of state to get the care that you are able to get right now.” Yesterday, the MAKERS community sat down with Alexis McGill Johnson, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood, to discuss how our companies can play a significant role in establishing this demand. This is about equality, freedom and equity, and for companies that believe in those values, now is the time to live them.
- We are talking obviously now in terms of people needing to get out of state to get care in many ways. That cannot be a permanent future state, right? We cannot normalize needing to get out of state to get the care that you are able to get right now. And companies and culture play a really big role in setting that and demanding something different.
And so that to the extent that companies can be a part of helping people understand and also not being neutral on this. This is about equality. This is about freedom. This is about equity. These are about all the values that companies have said that they are aligned with and now is the time to really live them.
