Fight back against Trump’s Global Gag Rule. Join the #Fight4HER

#Fight4HER is focused on mobilizing action against Trump’s Global Gag Rule and in support of the bill to block it, the Global Health, Empowerment, and Rights (HER) Act. We’ve partnered with seasoned grassroots leaders around the country to organize local communities to take direct action that puts pressure on members of Congress to support the Global HER Act.

Join us for Capitol Hill Days

Population Connection Action Fund invites you to join activists from across the country at our annual Capitol Hill Days event. You’ll spend a weekend in Washington, DC, hearing from a range of speakers on topics related to family planning, population, and the environment. You’ll also receive training on how to effectively lobby your elected officials. On Monday morning, you’ll head up to Capitol Hill for meetings with the offices of your members of Congress. It’s a fun, educational, and inspiring time for all. All are eligible to attend, and scholarships covering travel and lodging are available for students.

Due to covid-19, we turned Capitol Hill Days 2020 into a digital weekend of action, and guess what? It went great! Check back for a recap of the event soon!
