PPCCAF's Endorsement Process Overview
PPCCAF endorses candidates and works to elect lawmakers who will support sexual health education, reproductive health and rights. PPCCAF is a non-partisan organization that endorses and partners with candidates and elected officials who support a full range of reproductive care regardless of political party or affiliation.
The Action Fund may decide to support a candidate whose position on reproductive health care access and rights is fully consistent with the mission of Planned Parenthood by giving an official endorsement or, alternatively, public recognition of the candidate’s 100% rating on Action Fund issues. Support may take the form of newspaper and on-line advertisements, postings on the Action Fund website, email notices, voter guides, and, in the case of an endorsement, monetary contribution. In addition, the Action Fund may choose to oppose a candidate who undermines reproductive health care access and/or rights.
Candidates seeking the Action Fund’s endorsement may be personally interviewed, as determined by the Action Fund’s Electoral Committee.
Candidates seeking the Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s endorsement or recognition are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the below electoral policies.
Action Fund endorsements and recognitions are issued for the current election cycle only and are revocable at any time. Previously endorsed or recognized candidates must apply for endorsement or recognition each time they run.
Candidates are encouraged to contact Julie Mickelberry, VP Planned Parenthood Central Coast Action Fund with questions at (805) 722-1508 or [email protected]
