2020 Key Races and Candidates

For years, politicians have worked to undermine our rights and our access to health care: stacking the federal courts, passing unconstitutional legislation, spreading deceptions, imposing arbitrary restrictions, and waging one legal battle after another. But in 2018 and 2019, voters elected reproductive health champions, and rejected false and debunked attacks from anti-abortion politicians — and in 2020, we’ll do it again.

Learn about the biggest opportunities to take back our power in November — and about what’s at stake in these battlegrounds for our rights, our bodies, and our health care.

Key Races

In these states, voters have the chance to elect champions for reproductive rights — and to send home politicians who’ve leveled attack after attack on abortion access, reproductive health care, and so much more.
