What's a Planned Parenthood volunteer clinic escort and why are they needed? Well, unfortunately, everyday outside of our Highland Park clinic there are protesters who harass our patients as they enter and exit our clinic. Our clinic escorts perform a very criticial role; they help ensure that our patients can enter and exit safely and with as little harassment from anti-choicers as possible. It's a challenging position, but at the end of the day, escorts know that they are making a big difference. Check out the video below to learn more about the important work our escorts do.

A big thank you goes out to all of the people who have worked as clinic escorts. We can't thank you enough!!!
