Anna Quindlen is an American journalist, best-selling novelist, and widely respected opinion leader. In 1990 she became the third woman in The New York Times’ history to write for its influential Op-Ed page. Her nationally syndicated column “Public and Private” won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1992. Now, as a national board member for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, she knows how critical the political muscle and grassroots momentum of Planned Parenthood will be to the 2014 elections.
Mike Drysdale, J.D. is an attorney with Dorsey & Whitney. Since 2005, he has donated countless pro bono hours working to stop unconstitutional laws passed by the South Dakota legislature—some of the country’s most egregious laws undermining access to health care for women. As the leader of our SD litigation team, Mike has been a fierce advocate for the women and families of South Dakota and a true Planned Parenthood champion. Mike serves on the board of directors for PPMNS, as well as the Action Fund.
