Akilah Ensley

For my son, though, being black in America is about more than his skin color. It’s about power, confidence, culture and belonging.

Akilah Ensley leads the fight for reproductive justice and a seat at the table for people of color from her seat on the board of Planned Parenthood North Carolina. As a young woman, Planned Parenthood has an open door when Akilah faced tough yet necessary decisions about becoming a parent. The treatment she received encouraged her to act to ensure that every American, young and old, has an equal chance at a prosperous future! Thank you, Akilah, for your never ending dedication!
