Updates from the #Fight4HER Campaign

While attacks on reproductive health and rights by the Trump administration and its cronies multiply, the #Fight4HER campaign is standing up and fighting back stronger than ever. Over the course of the summer, activists and volunteers have been organizing in communities around the country to garner support for the Global HER (Health, Empowerment, and Rights) Act, which would permanently repeal the deadly Global Gag Rule. Check out some of our highlights from the summer, and learn what you can do to defend global reproductive rights!

#Fight4HER is raising awareness about the harmful impacts of the Global Gag Rule in the developing world, as well as the Trump administration’s attacks on reproductive rights here in the United States. Through this movement to build support for reproductive freedom for all people, #Fight4HER has created a community of young organizers who will keep fighting through November and beyond!
