Keynote Speaker Monica Cline
Former family planning training manager and volunteer educator for Planned Parenthood
Monica Cline has always been inspired to help people who felt marginalized and in need. This desire led her to work for an HIV/AIDS organization where she taught sexual risk reduction education to women and teens. She was trained by leaders of the LGBT community, Planned Parenthood and Title X Family Planning.
Monica’s HIV prevention, health services and Title X training lasted over a decade. During this time, Monica thrived as an accomplished trainer and public speaker. However, she came to learn from her mentors that serving the marginalized meant “meeting them where they’re at,” and leaving them there. This philosophy, her experience in the community, and her own personal story prompted Monica to question the family planning approach to sex education and crisis pregnancy counseling.
Her questions were not received well by her colleagues and she was reminded that if she was not Pro-Choice, then she didn’t belong. The decision to leave and pursue opportunities that would actually provide significant services and resources for those in need was an easy one. Today, Monica speaks candidly with parents, teens and organizations about her experience in risk reduction education, crisis-pregnancy counseling, parenting, the importance of having established values in relationships and how to have open conversations with family about these crucial topics.
“Parents can and should be the primary sex educators for their kids.”
