#500 Grassroots Defunding, Price of Roe, Hiroshima Action

Updates on Our Projects, Part 2 of 2 Grassroots Defunding: Finding Alternatives to Planned Parenthood Website: www.grassrootsdefunding.org We update this website every few days. We’ve matched specific alternatives (usually Community Health Centers) to each U.S. Planned Parenthood center in the country.
