More than 750 Planned Parenthood health centers provide health care services to nearly three million people and sex education to more than one million people every year.

Since joining Planned Parenthood in 2006, Richards has expanded its advocacy power and developed a unified national web presence receiving 47 million online visits annually. A frequent commentator on women's rights, reproductive health and sex education, she is a contributor to The Huffington Post and serves on the board of the Ford Foundation.
