5 Ways to Get Involved with Planned Parenthood Locally
Here are a few ways you can join the fight and get involved locally right here in Massachusetts.
From Beacon Hill to Capitol Hill
The fight to protect access to sexual and reproductive health care is taking place on Capitol Hill, across the country in every state, and right here at our own State House. In order to defend access to sexual health services, the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts pursues an ambitious state legislative agenda.
In the 2015-2016 legislative session, PPAF advocated for legislation that would expand access to sexual and reproductive health care and comprehensive sexuality education in Massachusetts – and advocated against dangerous state legislative measures aimed at restricting access to safe and legal abortion.
Next legislative session, Massachusetts voters expect their elected officials to take bolder action in passing policies that improve health care access and comprehensive sex education. Each session that the Massachusetts State House fails to pass smart public policies like the Healthy Youth Act and other measures that would enhance patient confidentiality protections is a missed opportunity for Massachusetts to lead the rest of the nation in initiatives that will make healthier, more vibrant communities.
