SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF. – Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties welcomes keynote speaker Camila Chávez, co-founder and executive director of the Dolores Huerta Foundation to the 5th annual Empowerment Luncheon fundraising event. The Dolores Huerta Foundation is an organization dedicated to inspiring and motivating people to organize sustainable communities in order to attain social justice.
The event will be held at the Hilton Hotel, 285 East Hospitality Lane, San Bernardino, Calif., 92408, on Thursday, September 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets are $45 per person and proceeds will benefit community programs such as the Young Women’s Health Conference — a day of free workshops that provides hundreds of high school-aged women with the tools and information they need to make responsible decisions about their health and relationships.
“Camila’s work and philosophies exemplify empowerment,” said Robert Armenta, Jr., vice president of public affairs at Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties. “It is her belief that by pursuing a life of principle, people are able to ensure human rights — a notion perfectly in line with the reproductive education and rights advocacy Planned Parenthood stands for.”
