Our Action Fund fights day in & day out to elect bold repro rights champions to office; protect access to reproductive health care services; & build bright futures by engaging & fostering positive relationships with the communities we serve.

We serve the District of Columbia, Maryland, & Virginia, each with their own priorities. Because we reside in the capital, we also participate in many national level actions with coalition partners to protect access to healthcare & preserve reproductive justice.

Our Priorities

With anti-choice leaders in Congress & the White House, we’re fighting hard everyday to protect our care. Our top priority on the national level is to defeat attacks on birth control access for good & advocate to improve the Affordable Care Act (2010).

We believe everyone should have access to affordable health coverage & the freedom to choose to receive care from Planned Parenthood.

Washington, D.C.

Here in the District, we face a unique set of challenges, as our budget is controlled by an anti-choice Congress & we lack voting representation. Our top priority in D.C. now is protecting birth control access should the Affordable Care Act be repealed. Long term, we hope to work with partners to achieve homerule & political autonomy for the District.


In 2017, Planned Parenthood had sweeping victories in the Virginia elections. Now, it's time to work with members of the Virginia General Assembly to introduce legislation to protect and expand reproductive health care services and reproductive rights, and to defeat legislation that will restrict access to health care. We lobby elected officials on legislation relating to reproductive health and rights. 


Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C. has two health centers in Maryland. Fortunately, the reproductive health care champions in office in MD passed a law in 2016 that ensures no-copay birth control for folks in MD with state-regulated health insurance. The Contraceptive Equity Act enhances, expands, and protects access to contraception, regardless of federal actions. PPMW Action Fund worked closely with our sister affiliate in Maryland to get this important legislation passed.
