We are leaving the Planned Parenthood federation and will now operate as Access Esperanza Clinics Inc., and independent non-profit organization. 

"We are changing our name to provide greater access to preventive health care for more low-income Valley women and men"

Activists and writers have long argued that there are “racist elements” or “racist injustices” embedded in our current crisis of mass incarceration. [Michelle] Alexander would have us push this claim much further, arguing that mass incarceration is “a stunningly comprehensive and well-disguised system of racialized social control that functions in a manner strikingly similar to Jim Crow.” She disarms the popular notion that it is somehow wrong to discuss a modern Jim Crow in the age of Barack Obama, noting that “no other country in the world imprisons so many of its racial or ethnic minorities. The United States imprisons a a larger percentage of its black population then South Africa did at the height of apartheid.” In Alexander’s rendering Jim Crow didn’t die so much as it mutated.
