Former Planned Parenthood Executive A former director at Planned Parenthood is suing the organization for racial discrimination she claims she endured for months while working there.

Nicole Moore, who until last yr served as director of multicultural brand engagement on the reproductive rights organization, filed a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court alleging that the corporate has long ignored complaints of unfair treatment from Black employees.

Based on Moore, Black employees experience hostility and harassment along with discrimination in hiring, pay and promotions. “As an alternative of addressing the problems, Planned Parenthood has doubled down by punishing employees of color who dare to talk up,” Moore’s lawyers wrote within the grievance.

Moore claims that after repeatedly complaining about unfair treatment, she was placed on a performance improvement plan before being fired last yr.

Based on Susan Manning, the organization’s interim general counsel Planned Parenthood strongly dispute the plaintiff’s allegations and categorically deny her claims of discrimination, the Latest York Times reports.

The organization’s “top priority for our dedicated staff is constructing a culture of diversity across the organization to satisfy our mission of reproductive health for all,” Ms. Manning said.

Nonetheless, Moore said in a press release provided by her attorneys that discrimination within the workplace at Planned Parenthood has a direct impact on Black women’s access to and satisfaction with the organization’s reproductive healthcare services.

“If staffers are coping with anti-Blackness, retaliation, and disrespect within the workplace, how can we then expect this organization to possibly deliver compassionate care to Black women who’re in search of their services?” she said.

Moore is in search of unspecified damages based on the accusations of  race discrimination and retaliation by Planned Parenthood, which is in violation of federal and Latest York state and city laws.
