BOSTON – The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund (PPAF) celebrates the victories of its entire endorsed candidate slate including Annissa Essaibi-George, Michael Flaherty, Ayanna Pressley, and Michelle Wu for Boston City Council At-Large as well as Matt O’Malley, Tito Jackson, Josh Zakim, and Mark Ciommo for Boston District City Council.

Quote from Tricia Wajda, PPAF's Director of Public Affairs:

“The election of our entire slate of endorsed candidates makes clear that championing access to women’s health care and comprehensive sexuality education are important priorities for Boston voters.

Ayanna Pressley’s leadership passing a Wellness Policy in Boston Public Schools and Michelle Wu’s vocal advocacy for a paid parental leave policy for city of Boston employees are real examples of how our local leaders play a significant role in creating and implementing policies that support the health and wellness of Boston’s women, men, and young people.

We are particularly excited to welcome newcomer Annissa Essaibi-George to the Boston City Council and look forward to partnering with all of our Boston City Council members to combat the health inequities and disparities affecting our city.

PPAF ran a volunteer-driven voter education program to inform voters about their endorsed candidates and turn out Boston voters on Election Day.  The program included a mobile voter guide, social media and supporter communications.  Additionally, PPAF staff, interns, and volunteers engaged voters about electing local women’s health champions through phone banks and canvassing Boston’s neighborhoods.

PPAF endorsed candidates in Boston municipal races for the first time in 2011 and expanded its municipal endorsement program to Worcester in 2013.  This election cycle, PPAF engaged municipal candidates and educated voters in elections in Boston, Worcester, and Springfield.
