Summer of HER

The Summer of HER (Health, Empowerment, and Rights) is a field project of the #Fight4HER campaign, co-sponsored by Population Connection and our sister organization, Population Connection Action Fund. Fellows work in their communities, across the country, to build support to permanently end the cruel and callous Global Gag Rule.

Activists work to advocate for the full range of comprehensive reproductive health care for individuals around the world through:

  • Collecting petitions to Congress in support of the Global HER Act
  • Recruiting and training new volunteers
  • Organizing rallies, petition drops at the offices of members of Congress, and social media actions
  • Garnering support for pro-choice, pro-family planning champions in Congress
  • Landing media hits in local news outlets to spread the word about the #Fight4HER
  • Building coalitions with progressive organizations
