Reproductive rights are under attack around the globe, including here in the United States.  Thanks to the backwards policies of Donald Trump and his anti-woman administration, access to birth control and safe abortion is threatened on a weekly, if not daily, basis.

While it has always been necessary and important to stand up for global reproductive freedom, we are at a critical moment when defending these rights is an essential part of progressive advocacy and resistance.

Are you interested in advocating for reproductive health and rights for all people, with hundreds of other equally passionate activists?

Then welcome to Capitol Hill Days 2018!

Each year, advocates from around the country (and across the world!) gather for four days in Washington, DC to stand up for reproductive rights. Through a weekend of hands-on advocacy training and informational workshops, participants learn how to:

  • Advocate for reproductive healthcare for all
  • Urge their elected officials to support an investment in global reproductive health and family planning
  • Stay engaged in reproductive rights advocacy, locally, year round.

On the final day of Capitol Hill Days, participants meet with their senators and representatives on Capitol Hill to advocate for a permanent repeal of Trump’s Global Gag Rule, and for a greater U.S. investment in family planning services overseas.

Registration is free, and students enrolled in an accredited academic program are eligible to apply for a scholarship to cover all travel and lodging costs for the weekend. Register today!
