Planned Parenthood Booth Reinstated After Lilith Fair Singers Protest

Lilith Fair Musicians Joan Osbourne and Sarah McLachlan were successful in their efforts to convince officials at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion to revoke their policy barring those advocating "controversial issues" from setting up booths at the venue. After Osbourne and McLachlan threatened a future boycott of the pavilion unless officials permitted Planned Parenthood set up an information booth, the booth was reinstated. Planned Parenthood has had a booth at every other Lilith Fair concert.
