Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin Kicks Off Centennial With Weekend of Action
PPAWI has invested in the largest door-to-door voter contact effort in its history.
MADISON – As Planned Parenthood celebrated 100 years of providing essential health care and 80 years of service in Wisconsin, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin (PPAWI) took the opportunity to lift up candidates who prioritize women’s health.
“We are intensifying support for candidates who will make women’s health a priority,” said Koby Schellenger, who specializes in outreach at PPAWI. “This historic election deserves a historic effort. The stakes have never been higher than they are right now. Health care access hangs in the balance this election, and we’re working to make sure voters know which candidates are women’s health champions.”
This election, PPAWI has invested in the largest door-to-door voter contact effort in its history. The statewide program is focused in communities where Planned Parenthood has health centers. This Saturday alone, volunteers knocked 3,228 doors across Wisconsin and talked to voters about the candidates who support the essential health care Planned Parenthood provides – including Hillary Clinton, Russ Feingold and other area endorsed federal and state candidates.
Planned Parenthood has been providing high-quality, affordable health care in Wisconsin for 80 years, and PPAWI – with the help of its endorsed candidates – will continue to work to protect those services as well as engage on issues that impact women and families and will move our communities forward.

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin is the advocacy arm of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. PPAWI engages in legislative and educational activity and works to elect candidates to office that support these goals.

This action comes on the heels of a major health care victory, stopping the Affordable Care Act repeal bill.
This bill would allow working people in Wisconsin to take paid time when they are caring for a new child, for a seriously ill family member or recovering from their own serious illness.
