Leadership

Power to Decide, the campaign to prevent unplanned pregnancy, receives guidance from a top-flight board of directors who help to provide overall direction for the organization. This governing body is supported by several advisory panels, including a non-partisan Congressional Advisory Panel and Public Policy Advisory Group, the State and Local Action Advisory Group, the Health Equity Advisory Panel, and the Health Care Advisory Group. Power to Decide’s daily efforts are championed by a remarkable team of more than 30 Power to Decide team members.
