Together, these organizations handle the state-wide legal, legislative, regulatory, advocacy, and electoral work for California’s seven separately incorporated Planned Parenthood Affiliates. These Affiliates operate 114 health centers and handle more than 1.6 million patient visits annually.

PPAC (a 501(c)(4) organization) follows state and federal legislation in a number of public policy arenas. It leads the policy, legislative and electoral work for the California Affiliates and coordinates social media campaigns. CPPEF (a 501(c)(3) organization) promotes education, counseling, and clinical services in the fields of reproductive health care and family planning, and more recently, primary care. We handle administrative, legislative and regulatory actions, including statewide and local initiatives, as well as, on occasion, litigation. We coordinate a number of cross-affiliate projects and regularly convene meetings and trainings for the California Affiliates on a host of issues.

Our mission is to create a personally and politically safe climate in which individuals have universal and unfettered access to sexual and reproductive health care and can make their own decisions about these services.

PPAC’s vision and leadership has spurred lawmakers to enact legislation that makes California a national leader in the funding of family planning and other reproductive health care services. PPAC played a key role in augmenting state funding for family planning and has played a leading role in the fight against anti-choice legislation for 40 years.

Values

For more than 40 years, PPAC/CPPEF has been on the forefront of successful efforts to protect the reproductive freedom of all Californians. We believe that by honoring certain core values in our everyday work, we will be better able to promote sound public policies relating to reproductive health care, family planning services, comprehensive sexuality, education, and clinic services, and ensure access to all.
