PPAA’s 2020 Candidate Endorsements: Elect School Board Candidates That Will Represent You!
School boards are not all identical. They represent multiple stakeholders and institutions within the community, such as parents, guardians, students, and educators. They represent nonprofit workers, health care workers, and business leaders. This varied set of perspectives allows for a more comprehensive ability to approach issues and concerns within schools and the community. Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona is proud to endorse a diverse range of candidates running for K-12 school and college board districts in Maricopa County. This November, it’s our job, every one of us, to ensure that we elect school board members that represent our communities and are working with and for us!

A Century of Women’s Suffrage
August 26, 2020, marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the amendment that finally recognized women’s right to vote. Although women should have already been included in the U.S. Constitution when it was adopted in 1789, it took suffrage workers 131 years to get the 19th Amendment ratified.
PPAA’s 2020 Candidate Endorsements: Onward to November’s General Elections!
Last week we celebrated a historic night as many of our endorsed candidates secured their spots on the ballot for November’s general election. These wins prove that Arizona voters are prioritizing electing public servants that both protect reproductive freedom and represent all of our communities. Lifelong Tucsonan, Representative Alma Hernandez, and former DREAMer and State Senate candidate, Lynsey Robinson, both embody the current and growing demographics within Arizona. We at Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona are proud to endorse Hernandez for reelection and Robinson for election. Now is the time to look forward as we continue the work ahead that will ensure these nominees take their offices in January.
