If you can't get through to one office, try another. There is no benefit to calling one office over another. Leaving a voicemail is as good as reaching a live person. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.

Call the SF office first, but try the other offices if you can’t get through. If you can’t get a live person, leave a voicemail and also send a follow-up email written in your own words. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.

DC Office: (202) 225-4965
Call the SF office first, but try the DC office if you can’t get through. If you get voicemail, hang up and try a few more times to talk to a real person. Don’t give up! Short direct messages are most effective. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.

[Senate] Please vote for the Global Health, Empowerment, and Rights (HER) Act (S368)
[House] Please vote for the Global Health, Empowerment, and Rights (HER) Act (HR 1055)
Like other Republican administrations, the Trump administration has revived the global gag rule, an executive order that denies US funding to any foreign nongovernmental organization that provides abortion counseling or referrals or advocates to decriminalize abortion or expand abortion services. The Global HER Act (S368/HR 1055) would reverse and permanently prohibit this rule, protecting lifesaving services for people and communities that already have limited access to health care.
The global gag rule (formally known as the Mexico City Policy) has been established repeatedly by Republican administrations, and removed by Democratic administrations, since 1984. It forces doctors and community health organizations in developing countries to choose between receiving adequate funding and withholding basic healthcare information from their patients—which threatens their ability to provide safe, high-quality services, increases the risk of unintended pregnancies and unsafe abortions, and violates medical ethics. The Global HER Act would would greatly reduce these severe real-world consequences by making it more difficult for antiabortion ideologues to treat family planning aid and other global health assistance as a political football .
