Get to know our new Detroit Organizer, Shaniqua Gibson!

Hey Shaniqua! We’re excited to have you on our team. Introduce yourself to our supporters.

Hey! I’m Shaniqua, I use pronouns she/her/hers. I am from Cleveland, OH, but I moved to Detroit in 2016 to be with my fiance. I graduated from Bowling Green State University, and I am currently a grad student at Wayne State University, pursuing my master’s degree in Urban Planning with a concentration of community development and racial equity.

Why is Planned Parenthood important to you?

Planned Parenthood is important to me because everyone deserves access to healthcare, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, sex, or gender.

You will be serving as our new Detroit organizer. What do you love about Detroit?

I love the spirit of Detroit! Detroiters are some of the strongest, most resilient people to ever exist!

What are you most looking forward to in your new position?

I am looking forward to building community partnerships and expanding upon the connections I have already made.

What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy traveling and trying new foods!

How can people get in touch with you?
