Hempstead, NY – The Planned Parenthood of Nassau County Action Fund Political Committee proudly announced its endorsements of pro-women’s health candidates for November’s local elections.

“Planned Parenthood of Nassau County (PPNC) serves thousands of women and families every year in our community. These thousands of individuals need and deserve elected officials who will stand strong in support of comprehensive reproductive health care services and sexuality education programs,” said Planned Parenthood of Nassau County Action Fund President & CEO JoAnn Smith. “The Planned Parenthood of Nassau County Action Fund Political Committee has proudly endorsed candidates for New York State Senate and Assembly who have demonstrated their unwavering commitment to protecting access to the essential, life-saving services that PPNC provides.”
