Trump’s Global Gag Rule Anniversary

January 23, 2018

It’s been one year since Donald Trump imposed his expanded version of the Global Gag Rule on health clinics across the developing world.

We commemorated the horrible event by projecting a series of messages onto the front of Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C., and by sending mobile billboards out into communities in Las Vegas and Wisconsin (Milwaukee, Madison, and Racine/Kenosha).
