Tennessee Advocates for Planned Parenthood

Tennessee Advocates for Planned Parenthood (TAPP)is the advocacy 501c4 non-profit organization that protects Planned Parenthood patients through legislative and political action in our state. Now more than ever, we must build a powerful voice for all of the people that Planned Parenthood serves.


The time leading up to the 2020 election is critical and we can’t waste a minute.

The hateful attitude extremist politicians have towards the people we care for interferes with good governing. We will not have reasonable elected leadership until we break the anti-choice supermajority and elect common sense, compassionate candidates. In order to do that, we are starting early to actively build a base of support in key areas around the state. We need to make phone calls, go door-to-door, register voters, recruit, train and support candidates who support sexual and reproductive health.

Emboldened by the Trump administration’s goal to undermine Roe v Wade, regressive politicians have made Tennessee one of the most difficult states in the nation to access abortion. This attack on women’s health is appalling when nearly one-quarter of women will have an abortion in her lifetime.

Based on an exponential increase in progressive voter turnout in 2018,breaking the anti-choice supermajority is within reach, but we can’t do it without your support!


If you believe in reproductive rights and affordable, accessible healthcare for all, please help us by making a gift as generous as you possibly can – equal to the level of your passion.  We need extraordinary support to ensure our survival at this critical moment in history.    

TAPP is uniquely suited to hold elected officials accountable in bold and courageous ways. There are no shortcuts or silver bullets. Our staff have over 30 years of community organizing, legislative, and campaign experience. We are prepared to do the hard, diligent work–for greater outreach, deeper connection, and developed grassroots leadership–so we can shift power in our state to protect the patients we serve and the values we uphold.

We can do so much more with your support with a gift to TAPP or you can give to Planned Parenthood Tennessee Action Fund so we can contribute to pro-choice candidate campaigns directly. Gifts are non-tax deductible.
