Planned Parenthood Endorses Candidates

Planned Parenthood Votes! RI PAC is pleased to announce its 2012 state legislative PAC endorsements. PPV!RI PAC supports its candidates by educating voters through phone calls and social media to ensure Rhode Islanders know what is at stake for women and women’s health ahead of the September 11th primary and the November 6th general election.

Also, PPV!RI PAC will participate in the “Women are Watching…and Voting” National Day of Action on Saturday, September 8, 2012. This special event comes on the heels of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s two-week “Women Are Watching…and Voting” battleground bus tour, which made stops in 11 states and traveled more than 5,000 miles. For more information on the Women are Watching Campaign, visit

This year, women will decide the outcome of elections across the country, and are watching very closely to ensure that they elect candidates — up and down the ballot — who will protect women’s health care.

If you are interested in volunteering this weekend or anytime with Planned Parenthood Votes! RI PAC, please contact us at or call (401) 421-7820 x3145.
