PPAF endorsed Janey because she understands sexual and reproductive health plays a key role overall health and she will prioritize smart public health policies that will improve the health and wellbeing of all Bostonians.

“Now more than ever, the people of Boston are counting on local leaders who will protect the health, wellbeing, and basic rights of everyone. Kim has long been a vocal champion of her community and as City Councilor she will push forward holistic solutions that dismantle barriers to care and help all Bostonians lead healthy, fulfilling lives,” Dr. Jennifer Childs-Roshak, president of PPAF, said. “As an advocate for Boston children and families, Kim knows firsthand how health care access, economic opportunity, discrimination, and other disparities impact the health and wellbeing of individuals. We are proud to endorse her and look forward to working with her to build healthier, thriving neighborhoods.”

Planned Parenthood health centers care for and educate women, men, and young people from every Boston neighborhood.  As Planned Parenthood’s advocacy arm, PPAF understands the needs of these communities and the profound role elected leaders play in improving the lives and communities of Planned Parenthood patients.

These proactive policies are essential components of any plan to response for reduce unintended teen pregnancy and STD rates, prevent sexual assault, increase student achievement, and break cycles of poverty.

“I am incredibly proud to have earned the endorsement of the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund. I will always fight to protect the critical reproductive health services that Planned Parenthood provides for all. Addressing the racial and socioeconomic health disparities in our city is key to creating vibrant, safe, and healthy communities,” Janey said.
