About Us

Planned Parenthood Action Council (PPAC) is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Association of Utah. PPAC engages in educational and electoral activity including legislative advocacy, voter education, and grassroots organizing to promote Planned Parenthood Association of Utah’s mission.

PPAC works to ensure women and men have access to the family planning and reproductive health care services and information they need. We intend to create a world where sexual and reproductive rights are human rights; access to health care doesn’t depend on who you are; and a world where every person has the opportunity to choose their own path to a healthy and meaningful life.
