Cecile Richards to visit Garrison Theater
On Thursday, January 30, Claremont’s Scripps College brings Cecile Richards to Garrison Theater, 241 E. 10th Street, at 7 p.m. for a free and open to the public discussion. Ms. Richards has twice been listed in Time magazine’s list of 100 Most Influential People in the World. She visits Scripps as the Roxanne Wilson Leader-in-Residence. The event is free, but registration is required at scrippscollege.edu/events. During her 12-year tenure as president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Ms. Richards has worked to increase affordable access to reproductive health. In 2019, Ms. Richards co-founded Supermajority, a political action group working to mobilize women voters, along with Alicia Garza (a founder of Black Lives Matter) and Ai-jen Poo (executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance). Ms. Richards will visit Scripps to discuss, among other things, the work ahead as the country gears up for an election year. More info is at scrippscollege.edu/events.
