Ways to Take Action

We fight back when anti-abortion politicians and their extremist allies try to outlaw abortion, take away access to affordable birth control, and block patients from needed health care.

And we need your help.

Our rights are under attack and and access to sexual and reproductive health is at risk. Join us and fight back NOW.

We know that when we support and uplift the political and social power of Black communities, we can build an equitable, sustainable, and inclusive movement that centers those who are most impacted. Our Black Organizing Program works to elevate voices within the Black community and center our advocacy work in civic participation.

Our Disability Advocacy & Organizing Program — the first of its kind at any Planned Parenthood affiliate — aims to increase awareness of the disparities and discrimination disabled people face in accessing health care and to join the fight for equal rights for all.

Young people's voices are often missing from conversations where decisions about their right to access reproductive and sexual health care are made. We are a bold group of young people fighting to protect and expand reproductive and sexual health, rights, and access in Illinois.

Illinois’ Raíz Program works to build sustainable, community organizing teams in mutual partnership with Latinx communities. The Raíz Program is about more than just health. It’s about justice, knowledge, and power.
