Take Action with PPAA KY

Extremist politicians passed several laws that harmed our Queer & Trans youth last session, and they refused to restore access to abortion. This session they have filed a profusion of bills attacking voting rights and diversity, equity, and inclusion in PK-12, colleges, and universities, and they have filed a fetal personhood bill. This 60-day session is just getting started! We are preparing for additional abortion restrictions for out-of-state travel and more attacks on trans rights.

This winter, we need your help! Help us send a message to legislators loud and clear that we won't back down and we won't go back. We will be speaking to legislators in person, holding rallies, and speaking with legislators via Zoom for constituents from the far corners of the Commonwealth!  Join the fight for reproductive freedom by signing up to volunteer phone bank, attend a rally, or meet with a legislator in person or via ZoomThere are volunteer opportunities all across Kentucky.

Community Resources: 

This legislative session extremist politicians passed the worst attack on trans youth in the country and refused to restore access to abortion. Our rights are being stripped away, leaving people scared and confused about how to access essential health care. Below you'll find a few resources for families impacted by SB 150 and folks seeking abortions.
