HONOLULU — Today, Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii (PPVNH), announced its slate of endorsed candidates. PPVNH is proud to support candidates like Tracy Arakaki, who will work to ensure that Hawaii continues to protect and promote sexual and reproductive health and justice.                                                                                                                                           

Laurie Field, PPVNH Hawaii Legislative Director and Public Affairs Manager, stressed the importance of electing candidates who will lead these efforts in Hawaii.

“In 2018, Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii is all in. Hawaii people believe that everyone deserves the freedom and opportunity to control their health and lives,” said Field. “We’re tired of the federal government’s attempts to strip us of our health care by rolling out rules and policies that undermine our basic rights and freedoms. We won’t stand for it and neither will our endorsed candidates - all of whom have pledged to join us in the fight to ensure that all Hawaii people have the ability to lead healthy, full lives.”
