Two Weeks Out: NARAL Goes All-In For Manka Dhingra

October 24, 2017

(Seattle, WA) — With just days to go before one of the most nationally watched elections of the year, NARAL Pro-Choice America is going all-out to support a true champion for women and families, Manka Dhingra. Since Day One, NARAL has heavily invested in the race, spending more than $100k in the race,  and reaching over 26,000 voters. As part of our ongoing canvass efforts, NARAL members who live in the 45th district are out knocking on doors and speaking to their neighbors about just how much is at stake in this election. NARAL’s most recent mailer (our sixth) hits mailboxes today and highlights the stark contrast between pro-choice champion Manka, and her Trump-supporting who would put Planned Parenthood at risk:

“Members of NARAL Pro-Choice Washington are proud to go all-in to support Manka Dhingra and her campaign for state senate. The contrast in this race couldn’t be more clear: Jinyoung Englund supports Donald Trump and his war on women, while Manka Dhingra is a proven leader who will safeguard our basic human rights,” said NARAL Pro-Choice Washington Executive Director Tiffany Hankins. “In a district where Hillary Clinton won by an overwhelming 65%, it is clear that Eastsiders want someone to represent their best interests, and that includes opposing Trump’s dangerous agenda, protecting  Planned Parenthood, and ensuring that every woman can access basic reproductive healthcare, including abortion.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”


Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
