About Us

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is an independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit organization formed as the political arm of Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon engages in educational and electoral activity including public education campaigns, grassroots organizing, and legislative advocacy.

In 2002, we formed Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon, which is a statewide, non-partisan political action committee that supports pro-choice, pro-family planning candidates for office.

Candidates often do not give voters the information they need to make important election decisions and many anti-choice candidates try to hide their true agenda until after the election. To combat this, our political arm seeks to provide accurate information about candidates to voters.

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is incorporated under Section 501c(4) of the Internal Revenue Code. Therefore, contributions are not tax deductible. This site is paid for by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon and Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon and is not authorized by any candidate or candidate committee.

Our Mission

To advocate for public policy changes that will enhance and protect reproductive rights, and build support and accountability among our elected officials in Oregon.

To execute our mission, PPAO builds grassroots support for reproductive rights, engages in legislative lobbying, and builds leaders for the pro-choice movement. Our Political Action Committee works to educate voters on where candidates stand on key issues as well as make direct and in-kind contributions to pro-choice candidates.
