REDMOND — Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii (PPVNH) congratulates women’s health champion Manka Dhingra for the victory in the Washington State Senate race. Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest endorsed Dhingra in May and ran a multi-layered campaign to educate Washington state voters about what is at stake for women’s health in advance of the election. The candidates’ positions on women’s health played a critical role in this election, with numerous debates focused on health care and access to reproductive health care given the continued assault on women’s health care by the Trump administration.

“This is a resounding victory for the women and families of Washington state. Voters in Washington state put their faith in women to make their own health care decisions and in Manka Dhingra to fight for them,” said Treasure Mackley, Political and Organizing Director at PPVNH. “We have an opportunity to build upon the success over the past decade and fight back against the attacks on women’s health and rights. Now, Washington state can lead on equitable and just values, and move ahead on the Reproductive Health Equity Act, comprehensive sex education, health care access, equal pay, and voting rights. We look forward to working with Manka Dhingra on protective reproductive rights and fighting back against discrimination.”

In the final days leading into the election, PPVNH made 16,038 calls, knocked on 17,050 doors, and sent four pieces of mail to 34,176 households.

Dhingra has spent her career as a King County prosecutor keeping our communities safe from gun violence and domestic abuse. We know she will stand up to the Trump Administration and protect critical access to health care at Planned Parenthood. 

We also saw a number of election wins across the state, including Kate Burke for Spokane City Council, Roxanne Murphy for Bellingham City Council, Teresa Mosqueda and M. Lorena Gonzalez for Seattle City Council, bringing a focus to issues related to reproductive health equity and women’s rights.
