Planned Parenthood Empire State Votes PAC: Electing candidates who stand with Planned Parenthood and fight for our health and rights.
If the 2016 elections taught us one thing, it is that elections can have devastating consequences. And the 2018 elections taught us that elections can also ignite change.
With the help of advocates like you in 2018, we flipped the New York State Senate, sending a pro-reproductive rights majority to Albany that would stand up and defend our reproductive freedom – and they did just that. After 12 long years of fighting to align our state law with the protections of Roe v. Wade we saw the swift passage of the Reproductive Health Act (RHA). We were the first state in 2019 to enact a pro-active law – it set the stage for other measures to follow and sent a clear national message that we stand in defiance of efforts to strip our rights and freedoms.
It was not long after the passage of the RHA, that opponents began to spread blatant and disgraceful lies about the new law – seeking to distort the actions of those legislators who stood alongside us to protect our right to safe, legal abortion in New York. And make no mistake, these lies will be their rally cry throughout the 2020 election – and we must be ready to stand up and fight back.
So much is at stake. At a time when far too many are trying to pull us backward, we need your support to build a strong and aggressive PAC because it is the only way to protect what we have fought so hard to gain. Your donation will allow the Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts PAC (PPESV PAC) to support pro-reproductive rights candidates through direct monetary contributions and coordinated campaign assistance. This work will be critical to maintaining a State Legislature that stands up for the health and rights of all New Yorkers.
We are fighting for a world where everyone has access to health care and control of their bodies, their lives, and their futures. Join us. Donate to the PPESV PAC today.
OUR ACTION PLAN
The stakes have never been higher. We must use this election year to maximize Planned Parenthood’s power, fighting to protect our Champions in the legislature that support freedom, opportunity and equality. Over the coming months leading up to election day, PPESV PAC will:
1. Conduct an in-depth analysis to identify target districts across the state where we can play an effective role in supporting pro-reproductive rights candidates.
2. Use this information to provide the necessary support to both defend vulnerable seats held by legislators who have supported our mission and convert seats held by those who have not.
3. Leverage our statewide reach, and experience working with legislators to frame discussions with voters regarding advocacy for reproductive freedom throughout the election cycle.
You can help us win. Support our PAC today!
