We know how important the 2018 elections are. For too long, dangerous politicians have sat in power, pushing harmful legislation to undermine reproductive rights, deny people affordable birth control, and restrict access to safe, legal abortion. Even in Massachusetts, vocal, organized opponents of reproductive rights and health care access hold elected office. Time and again, they put their ideological agendas ahead of the health and rights of their constituents. But not for long.

Across the country and right here in Massachusetts, people are pulling papers to challenge politicians who don’t stand up for our health, rights, and communities. We are proud to support these candidates and their efforts to not only take down their incumbent opponents, but to advance a shared agenda that expands access to care, bolsters reproductive rights, and dismantles health inequities.

Scroll down to view the evolving list of challengers we have endorsed. You can also look up your own state lawmakers here.


Sign up to volunteer to support campaigns in the fight for reproductive rights and health care.
