Three Years of Trump’s Terrible Global Gag Rule

January 23, 2020, marked the third anniversary of Trump’s Global Gag Rule. Our #Fight4HER team across the country is working to make sure it’s the last!

In Manchester, NH, we unfurled a banner on the steps of the Capitol. In Tempe, AZ, and Columbus, OH, activists staged performative “die-ins” to highlight the impact of denying people comprehensive reproductive health care. In Denver, CO, we remembered the lives lost to unsafe abortion around the world with a candlelight vigil.

In Elk Grove, CA, we met with Rep. Ami Bera and had him film a brief video talking about his commitment to ending the Global Gag Rule. In Las Vegas, NV, volunteers wrote letters to the editor of newspapers throughout the state.

We braved the cold to protest outside of Sen. Rob Portman’s office in Columbus, OH, and made noise at a “honk-a-thon” protest against Sen. Pat Toomey in Allentown, PA. In Chapel Hill, NC, more than 200 people called on Sens. Thom Tillis and Richard Burr to repeal Trump’s Global Gag Rule.

Our movement to end Trump’s Global Gag Rule is gaining steam, but we need your help to finish the fight. Join the #Fight4HER today!
