About Us

Planned Parenthood Action Council (PPAC) is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Association of Utah. PPAC engages in educational and electoral activity including legislative advocacy, voter education, and grassroots organizing to promote Planned Parenthood Association of Utah’s mission. 

PPAC works to ensure Utahns have access to the sexual and reproductive health care services and information they need. We work to create a world where sexual and reproductive rights are human rights; access to health care doesn’t depend on who you are; and where every person has the opportunity to choose their own path to a healthy and meaningful life.
