The 2018 elections marked a huge victory for reproductive health and rights in Illinois. With your support, PPIA PAC:
- Flipped seats in Springfield from anti-choice politicians to pro-choice champions, electing Terra Costa Howard, Mary Edly-Allen, and Joyce Mason.
- Won two key Illinois races, electing pro-Planned Parenthood leaders Governor JB Pritzker and Attorney General Kwame Raoul.
- Elected the legislators who passed the Reproductive Health Act in 2019, securing access to maternal, contraceptive, and abortion health care in Illinois.
It only takes one election for the opposition to overturn the slim pro-choice majority in Springﬁeld. We know that anti-abortion candidates are organizing to take back the legislature so they can repeal the pro-choice legislation we have fought to pass.
PPIA PAC is pursuing an ambitions voter engagement plan to reach more than 350,000 supporters by:
Calling 500 supporters and encouraging them to vote for pro-choice leaders
Texting 25,000 voters and educating them on how to safely cast their ballots this fall
Reaching 30,000 supporters through social media posts to re-elect champions
Emailing 300,000 pro-reproductive rights voters before Election Day
