#Fight4HER Launches Third Annual Summer of HER

On June 1st, #Fight4HER will launch its third annual Summer of HER program. We are thrilled to have 129 fellows in our eight target states—Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania—who will help drive the #Fight4HER campaign, gaining invaluable experience fighting for reproductive health and rights using grassroots organizing tactics. Fellows will spend the summer learning skills to organize and mobilize their communities, and ultimately to be a part of the movement to make a difference in the 2020 elections.

While a pandemic has made this summer unlike any before it, the Summer of HER fellows are as dedicated to defending reproductive freedom as ever. Each state’s cohort will begin the summer by working remotely to collect petitions to call on members of Congress to repeal the Global Gag Rule and pass the Global HER Act, Get Out the Vote for pro-choice candidates, and assist with planning and executing HER Summits in their states.

We are proud to announce our 2020 Summer of HER fellows, and look forward to working alongside these dedicated reproductive health and rights defenders over the next few months. We know how important this fight is as we approach the 2020 elections, we know how eager the Summer of HER fellows are to get to work, and we know that together, we can win the #Fight4HER!
