The Summer of HER (Health, Empowerment, and Rights) is a 10-week field project of the #Fight4HER campaign. Fellows work in their communities to build support to permanently end the Global Gag Rule.

Activists work to convince members of Congress to fight for comprehensive reproductive health care and family planning for individuals around the world through:

  • Collecting petitions in support of the Global HER Act
  • Recruiting and training new volunteers
  • Organizing pressure events including rallies, petition drops
  • Garnering support for pro-family planning champions
  • Landing media hits in local news outlets to spread the word about the campaign
  • Building coalitions with progressive organizations
