Issues

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 Our top priority in D.C. now is protecting birth control access should the Affordable Care Act be repealed.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.

Virginia

The 2017 gubernatorial election in VA will be the first major election since Trump's victory last fall, & we must do everything we can to send a clear message: we will not tolerate attacks on repro rights & we can win at the voting booth. That’s why we’ll be working overtime in the coming months to elect a pro-choice governor in VA. Sign up HERE to help us elect Ralph Northam as governor of VA!

Maryland

Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C. has two health centers in Maryland. Fortunately, the reproductive health care champions in office passed a law in 2017 that ensures funding for Planned Parenthood health centers in Maryland should we be federally defunded.
