“Wanting healthcare for all people isn’t a conspiracy, it’s just the right thing to do” says Alencia Johnson, Director Public Engagement of Planned Parenthood.
Alencia was fortunate to grow up with health insurance and credits this as a key element to her success. She says:
“As a teenager, I had whole suite of people around me, from therapists to doctors, and this instilled a deep awareness that access to healthcare = access to opportunity. I didn’t realize it was a privilege, instead of the fundamental right it should be, until I went to college.”
Today, working for Planned Parenthood, access to healthcare is an issue Alencia remains close to.
As part of Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week, our Founder jumped into bed with two sustainable fashion heavyweights for an intimate discussion on how to improve a dirty industry.
The event drew inspiration from the format used by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, who almost 50 years ago in Amsterdam, held a press conference – in bed – to draw attention to world peace.
Curated by the True Fashion Collective, and made possible by Conscious Hotels and Amsterdam Gemeente West, the event was framed around the topic of transparency in fashion.
Read a snippet of the full report below, as featured in Fashion Revolution.

This was the invitation sent to a select group of entrepreneurs in Amsterdam who gathered at Your Space last week for an intimate night out.
