Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic Action Fund was formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic, the health care provider. The mission of the Action Fund is to protect reproductive freedom for all people in our region, by engaging in issue education, legislative advocacy, and voter education campaigns.
As the political and advocacy arm of Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic, the Action Fund works in Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam counties to elect officials at the federal level who will work to preserve reproductive freedom and justice. The PPHP Action Fund engages in education and electoral activities including issue education, legislative advocacy, and voter education campaigns.
The Action Fund’s primary purpose is educating voters about public policies that impact reproductive health care and rights – such as adequate funding for family planning services, access to safe and affordable abortion, the promotion of medically-accurate, age- appropriate sex education for our youth, increased access to emergency contraception and confidential health services for minors.
We mobilize supporters in a large email network, turn people out to testify at public hearings, and table at community events. We use every opportunity to talk to people about voting. We work on social media, and through canvasses and phone banks, to get people thinking about and planning to vote – especially in groups! We want you to take five friends with you to the polls on Election Day, and make sure those folks know who Planned Parenthood supports, and vote for the right candidates.
The PPHP Action Fund is a member of, and works in conjunction with, Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts and Planned Parenthood Action Fund on statewide and federal activities.
