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 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.
Committee Review: Candidate questionnaires are reviewed by PPCCAF’s Electoral Committee.
In-person Interviews: Candidates seeking the Action Fund’s endorsement may be personally interviewed, as determined by the Action Fund’s Electoral Committee.
Board Review & Decision: The PPCCAF Board will review recommendations and provide the final decision.
Deadline for August Endorsement Consideration: On or before July 15 by 5pm.
