President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil Human Rights and The Leadership Conference Education Fund
Washington, DC – Today, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund Cecile Richards celebrates the leadership of Wade Henderson, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and The Leadership Conference Education Fund.
Statement from Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
“Wade Henderson is a bold champion of fundamental human and civil rights. Our nation is a better place thanks to his tireless leadership and accomplishments as head of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. His grace and integrity are truly unmatched – qualities that have allowed him to advocate for the coalition of organizations who represent people most left at the margins, disenfranchised from the political process, and denied access to justice and quality of life. Along with the 2.7 million patients Planned Parenthood serves every year, and our 8 million supporters, I wish my friend well during the next chapter of his journey and am grateful for his impact.”
