Dawn Laguens

Dawn Laguens, executive vice president and chief experience officer of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, led the successful campaign to defeat the Pence amendment, a hugely unpopular congressional effort that would have eliminated funding for Planned Parenthood's preventive health care services that millions of people rely on. Since then she has shaped the organizations’ message and strategy, successfully working to help reverse the Susan G. Komen for the Cure decision to stop providing grants to Planned Parenthood affiliates, defending access to no-copay birth control (as outlined in the Affordable Care Act), and, through her work with Planned Parenthood Action Fund, helping to re-elect President Barack Obama, a champion for women's health and economic security. She works every day to uphold Planned Parenthood's commitment to care, no matter what, for their patients, advocates, and supporters nationwide.
