This independent expenditure committee created by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin in 2010 makes independent expenditures on behalf of Democratic candidates for statewide office and the legislature in Wisconsin. Planned Parenthood is the leading advocate and provider of reproductive health care for women in the state and the nation. Between 2010 and 2016, this committee spent more than $1 million on behalf of Democratic candidates. This is just one of several different committees Planned Parenthood has used to conduct campaigning over the last two decades.

In mid-October it reported spending on behalf of Democratic candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and state treasurer.

Planned Parenthood had already involved itself in various Wisconsin elections earlier in the year through its unregistered committee.

Last active election: 2016

This organization is registered with the Wisconsin Ethics Commission as an independent expenditure committee following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC.
