Hamilton star Lexi Lawson, Dear Evan Hansen's Phoenix Best, and Nicole Kang (Batwoman) joined forces to take part in a new advocacy short film from director and choreographer Mary John Frank about the Global Gag Rule. The U.S. policy, a 2017 executive action from President Donald Trump, cuts off support to foreign groups performing or promoting abortions.
As well as impacting abortion care, the Global Gag Rule affects aid to global health services including HIV treatment and prevention.
Shot with a mostly female team and created in partnership with NGOs like the Center For Health & Gender Equity, PAI, and more, the short musical film lays out what, exactly, the U.S. policy is, and what you can do about it.
