HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Effective immediately, Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates (PPPA) announces Signe Espinoza (she/her) as the organization’s Interim Executive Director. She has served as PPPA’s Policy Director for more than a year and is a familiar face to Pennsylvania’s Planned Parenthood network and statewide sexual and reproductive healthcare community.

“I am proud and humbled for the opportunity to be PPPA’s Interim Executive Director,” said Signe Espinoza, Interim Executive Director. “As someone who has personally struggled to access abortion care, and who identifies as a person of color, I greatly appreciate the opportunity to lead during such a critical time. Puerto Rico y Nicaragua, presente y pa’lante!”

Espinoza’s fierce, unapologetic stance toward reproductive rights and equity propelled her throughout her journey at Planned Parenthood which began when Signe was a patient. From there, she grew from a volunteer, to a storyteller, to an intern, to a policy director, and now to an interim executive director.

“We are thrilled to announce that our talented Policy Director, Signe Espinoza, will be stepping up to lead PPPA,” said Abass B. Kamara, PPPA Board Chair. “Signe is the right leader at the right time to take the organization into the next chapter as we continue fighting for a Pennsylvania where every person, no matter their zip code, income, sexual orientation, race, religion, gender, country of origin, or immigration status, has access to sexual and reproductive healthcare.” 

“I am committed and eager to continue building off of the work that we have accomplished and to fight and advocate for reproductive freedom for our most resilient communities," said Espinoza. "Our staff and board are committed to advancing race equity, and our internal and external work will strongly focus on centering and uplifting Black, Indigenous, people of color.”

PPPA continues to work closely with its 370,000+ supporters statewide, partner organizations, and coalitions in the fight to expand access to sexual and reproductive healthcare. PPPA continues to increase support for current legislative fights and build power to elect more sexual and reproductive healthcare champions. 




Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates (PPPA) exists to create a Pennsylvania where sexual and reproductive healthcare, including abortion, is accessible, affordable, and affirming for all. We achieve this, in partnership with the 3 Planned Parenthood affiliates in Pennsylvania, through electoral and advocacy campaigns, lobbying, and organizing.
