EngenderHealth: Raise Your Voice

PROJECT: Video design and production

ROLE: Writer, designer, animator, audio/video editor

The Global Gag Rule, otherwise known as the Mexico City Policy, is a US law that severely restricts how international nonprofits discuss abortion. Unfortunately, the GGR is a short-sighted law with consequences far beyond its intent.

EngenderHealth created its first anti-GGR video in 2008, called “Raise Your Voice: End the Global Gag Rule!” It encouraged citizens to contact the then-newly-elected President Obama to repeal the GGR, which he did eventually. However, it was reinstated by President Trump in 2017, so we updated and re-released the video.

I co-wrote the video, designed and animated it, scored it, and assembled the original video, as well as all subsequent updates.
