Washington, DC – Protest: Resist Trump. Kill the Gag.

March 8, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Trump’s global gag rule is a grotesque expansion of a failed, deadly policy that prohibits foreign organizations that receive U.S. global health assistance from providing or even discussing abortions with patients. This rule now threatens access to safe abortion and other basic health care for millions of people around the world.

We know that this egregious attack on the health and lives of women and other people who depend on U.S.-funded health programs for their care is just the first of many attempts the Trump Administration will make to strip away our sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice.

Fight back and say NO to the global gag rule, NO to abortion bans. Not now, not ever!

11:00am: Gather in Freedom Plaza
11:30am: March to the White House
12pm: Protest in Lafayette Park
