We are proud to introduce our January Leadership Luncheon keynote speaker Monica Leal Cline.
Monica Cline is a former family planning training manager and volunteer educator for Planned Parenthood. Monica’s HIV prevention, comprehensive sex education (CSE) and Title X training lasted over a decade. During this time, Monica thrived as an accomplished consultant, 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 comprehensive sex education and crisis pregnancy counseling. Her questions were not welcomed by her superiors and she was told that if she wasn’t pro-choice, then she didn’t belong there.
Today, Monica boldly exposes the truth behind comprehensive sex education and the harm it causes to our children, families and community. Monica’s goal is to encourage parents to take on their God given role as the primary educators for their children. She accomplishes this by equipping families with the resources and skills necessary to strengthen family trust and confidence. Monica’s belief is that It Takes a Family to raise strong children, build healthy communities, and form a great nation.
