2019 Municipal Endorsements

As national politicians attack our health and our rights, we must enact change on the local level. This moment in time demands local and vocal champions who will implement proactive policies that expand access to health care and help our communities lead healthy, fulfilling lives.

Sex education, skyrocketing rates of sexually transmitted infections, unjust barriers to health care — these are the issues at stake in our municipal elections this year. That's why the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts is proud to endorse the following local candidates for city council and school committee in Boston, Springfield, and Worcester.
