Planned Parenthood Federation of America will honor Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as a “champion of reproductive health” this Friday evening, March 27, 2009 in Houston.
The former First Lady will be joined by Ugly Betty Star America Ferrera and PPFA President Cecile Richards, the daughter of the late Texas Governor Ann Richards.
Secretary Clinton will receive the Margaret Sanger Award, the organization’s highest honor, in recognition of her support for women’s health and rights throughout her public service career.
Secretary Clinton will attend a VIP reception before the gala. During the event she will be introduced by Houston’s very own U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
