2020 Elections

In 2020, the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts is endorsing candidates who not only support reproductive rights and health - but also understand the importance of access to care.

These candidates have earned PPAF's endorsement through actively supporting sexual and reproductive health care and vocally advocating for proactive policies that will improve their constituents' access to abortion, contraception, family planning, and all other reproductive care.


ROE Act Champions

These candidates have shown extraordinary commitment to passing the ROE Act during the 2019-2020 legislative session.
