Cecile Richards is the president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Richards has had a long career of political and social justice activism: Before she joined Planned Parenthood in 2006, she served as House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi's deputy chief of staff. And in 2004, she founded an organization called America Votes that worked with grassroots organizers to advocate for increased voter turnout. She also serves on the board of the Ford Foundation. Since she took over Planned Parenthood, Richards has doubled the number of Planned Parenthood supporters and stood her ground against physical and ideological attacks on the organization and the funding it receives from the federal government.
