Rep. Derek Kilmer recognized by Planned Parenthood!

150 150

Planned Parenthood was founded over 100 years ago on the revolutionary idea that women have the right to access the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives. Today, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) fights to protect that right — often in the face of extreme politicians trying to take it away.

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is a nonprofit, non-partisan group. They are backed by more than 13 million activists, donors, and other supporters all working to advance access to sexual health care and defend reproductive rights. While PPAF works at the national level, local Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations are fighting to defend reproductive rights in states across the country.

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund has endorsed Derek Kilmer’s reelection in 2020!
