Planned Parenthood Action Fund And Joan Osburn Team Up Tp Get Out The Vote; Grammy-Nominated Singer/Songwriter Records Radio Ads To Air In Key Markets
NEW YORK - October 29 - Gloria Feldt, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF), announced today that acclaimed singer/songwriter Joan Osborne has recorded a 30-second radio advertisement on behalf of PPAF encouraging women to vote on November 3rd. “We are delighted that Joan Osborne is working with us on this project,” said Feldt. “Joan’s radio ad will reach hundreds of thousands of her fans with the message that they have to vote to protect their futures. Joan, a member of the Planned Parenthood Board of Advocates, has a strong commitment to the mission of Planned Parenthood. Her enthusiastic support of our programs is extremely important in energizing young women to become more involved in protecting their reproductive health.”

The 30-second spot reads as follows:

“This is Joan Osborne with a special message from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Twenty minutes. What can you do in 20 minutes? Believe it or not, with 20 minutes, you can shape your future. You can even decide who’ll represent you in Congress. And you can do it all in the simple act of voting. This fall, you’ve heard a lot of reasons not to vote. In fact, some people are banking on it. We’re offering one simple reason to vote anyway. It’s our future. This is our chance to shape it. And if we don’t vote, who will? Please vote November 3rd.”

The ads will run between October 30th and November 3rd in four key markets, Seattle (KLSY, KNDD, and KBKS), Denver (KIMN, KALC, KBCO, KYCL), Metro Washington, D.C. (WHFS, WWDC, and WRQX), and Milwaukee (WKTI, WMYX, and WPNT), for a total of 248 air plays.
