Statement on the midterm elections from Population Connection Action Fund

Population Connection Action Fund’s Senior Vice President for Media and Government Relations, Brian Dixon, issued the following statement on the midterm election results:

“It’s one for the history books. Organizers and volunteers of every race, creed, and gender knocked doors, made phone calls, and took a stand for health, empowerment, and rights for people everywhere. Voters listened. And they acted. Across the country, they rejected the politics of cruelty and chaos. And they elected leaders to the U.S. House of Representatives who will stand up against the politics of division and for vulnerable people everywhere — from Allentown, Pennsylvania, to Kibera, Kenya.

Today, we celebrate progress and congratulate our leaders on their historic victory. Tomorrow, we continue the fight to bring a permanent end to Trump’s cruel Global Gag Rule and protect access to reproductive health care for all people — and now we’ve got a fighting chance.”
