Planned Parenthood Minnesota Advocate
Founded in 1992, the Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization. As the advocacy and political arm of PPMNS, we mobilize supporters of all parties to defend and increase access to family planning services and fact based, medically accurate sexuality education.
Planned Parenthood is the largest source of sex education across our region, reaching more than 40,000 adults and young people. Highly trained sex educators are invited in to public and private schools, community centers, scout troops, churches, health clinics and more teach a variety of topics. In order to prevent sexual violence, young people need access to sex education that includes consent and healthy relationships, starting well before college and well before they become sexually active.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund Statement on Tim Pawlenty’s Announcement that He Will Run for Governor
Tim Pawlenty left Minnesota with a legacy of extreme laws that limit women’s access to abortion in our state. During his eight years as Governor, he undermined the health of Minnesota women and families, slashing health care funding while the number of uninsured Minnesotans increased by 50 percent.
It’s up to all of us to stand up for what we believe in – to proclaim loudly that shame and stigma have no place in health care, and that everyone deserves high-quality, affordable health care and accurate information. Here are six ways you can show your solidarity with Planned Parenthood.
