DENVER, CO – Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado (PPVC) is excited to announce our endorsement of Ashley Wheeland for House District 9 in southeast Denver.
Wheeland is a longtime champion for reproductive rights and reproductive health care, and has dedicated her career to expanding access to care for all Coloradans. She is the former Senior Policy and Political Director for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and has extensive knowledge and experience on policy issues impacting our community and state.
“We are excited to support Ashley in the upcoming election. PPVC endorses candidates who trust individuals to make their own health care decisions, including decisions about abortion care. No one has stood stronger for reproductive rights in our state. Ashley will prioritize health care access and reproductive justice for all Coloradans, especially those most marginalized by our health care system. She will continue to be a champion for the people of HD9 and all our communities,” said Sarah Taylor-Nanista, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado.
"I am so proud to be endorsed by the organization that provides and fights for women's health care every single day. Planned Parenthood is vital to so many of our communities, and has helped tens of thousands of Coloradans be able to take care of their own health and futures. I will fight for reproductive rights, health, and education, alongside Planned Parenthood in the Colorado legislature," said Ashley Wheeland.
Reproductive rights and access to health care are both priorities for Wheeland’s campaign platform.
Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado is a non-partisan, 501(c)(4) non-profit organization that engages in educational and electoral activity, including legislative advocacy, voter education, and grassroots organizing to promote the Planned Parenthood mission.
