Speak Up, Speak Out: What’s Needed to Pass the Global HER Act


Next Gen—Millennials and Gen Z—are on the cusp of becoming leaders across society. Starting now and over the next four decades, Next Gen around the world will be in the driving seat as chief executives, education administrators, legislators, and philanthropists. That’s why it’s critical to build a generation of informed, empowered advocates for the sexual and reproductive health of women and men around the world.

And leading up to the Generation Equality Forum, it’s critical to give these future leaders a platform to convene and converse further.

On Thursday, June 17, join Women in Global Health and Pathfinder Next Gen for an exciting discussion on the role young people can play in driving meaningful change and the importance of passing the Global HER Act to permanently repeal the Global Gag Rule.

* This discussion will be available in English and French.
