Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado advocates for creating, improving and protecting reproductive health care access, effective comprehensive sex education, pregnancy and STI prevention policies, and a woman’s right to determine when and whether she becomes pregnant. In turn, PPVC challenges government interference in personal decisions that should be left to women and their families.

We engage in educational and electoral activity, including legislative advocacy, voter education, and grassroots organizing to promote the Planned Parenthood mission.
