Recognizing Advocates for Women’s Health

Since 1978, the Downtown Women’s Center has been the only organization in Los Angeles exclusively dedicated to meeting the needs of women who are homeless or extremely low-income.  Reaching more than 3,000 women annually through housing, health, job readiness, advocacy, and basic needs programs, DWC works to end the homeless cycle among the women they serve.

The Kaiser Family Foundation is dedicated to filling the need for trusted information on national health issues.  They are a leader in health policy analysis and health journalism and serve as a non-partisan source of facts and analysis for policymakers, the media, the health care community and the public. Their product is information, always provided free of charge, and ranges from the most sophisticated policy research, to basic facts and numbers, to in-depth health policy news coverage provided by their news service, KHN, as well as information young people can use to improve their health or that the general public can use to understand the health reform law.

Planned Parenthood Los Angles (PPLA) is the largest provider of reproductive health services in Los Angeles County with over 140,000 patients served annually. PPLA is committed to providing convenient, affordable access to a comprehensive range of quality reproductive health care and sexual health information through patient services, education and advocacy. PPLA’s work is integral to improving the health outcomes for individuals, families and communities.
