Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona (PPAA) is Planned Parenthood’s advocacy arm in Arizona and the state’s largest nonpartisan advocacy organization dedicated to protecting access to sexual and reproductive health care. PPAA is fighting for every person’s freedom and right to make reproductive choices, enjoy sexual health and wellbeing, and build healthy, strong families by educating voters, public officials, and candidates for public office.

PPAA is a 501 (c)(4) organization, which is a nonprofit organization that can engage in electoral and political activities. Donations to a 501 (c)(4) organizations are not tax-deductible.

Legislative and Grassroots Advocacy:

Each year, Arizonans face an unprecedented number of legislative bills aimed at reducing their reproductive health care access and freedom. The efforts of PPAA ensure that all Arizonans and their families have a voice in defending those rights. PPAA is at the state capitol working to advance public policies that support reproductive health rights and freedom, while also defeating restrictive reproductive health care legislation that reduces or takes away an individual’s ability to make private medical decisions with their medical provider.

Our grassroots efforts are focused on helping all Arizonans gain fair and equal access to sexual and reproductive health rights, education, and medical services. PPAA educates and engages our grassroots network of activists, as well as voters, across the state on a variety of issues related to health and reproductive rights.

Electoral Engagement:

We support government officials and candidates who share our belief that access to sexual and reproductive health care and information is critical to the well-being of all citizens, and support sexual and reproductive health care access and rights for all. PPAA works within the electoral process to support candidates and educate voters about reproductive health issues and candidates who support a person’s access to health care. We engage in some of the following electoral activities:

  • Survey candidates and publicize their views
  • Endorse, campaign for, and support candidates who share our mission
  • Educate voters and public officials
  • Contribute to candidates through our Political Action Committee (PAC)
  • Host and co-sponsor events, from elegant affairs to informal meet-and-greets, that bring together national and state leaders, local officials, and concerned citizens

Arizona for Abortion Access

Arizona for Abortion Access is a coalition of reproductive health, rights, and justice organizations working to ensure Arizonans can make the decisions that are best for them and their families — free from government interference. This initiative will bring together hundreds of thousands of Arizonans in every community to ensure every person can make their own decisions with their healthcare provider and those they love and trust.
