The second letter, organized by the Student Government of the Washington University in St. Louis, addresses President Trump and congress in urging them to maintain funding for Planned Parenthood. 

  • We strongly urge President Trump and the members of Congress to uphold budget allocations to Planned Parenthood that, while also providing necessary public health resources to students on our campuses, also helps those in neighboring communities.

  • All signatories are listed below and will be updated as more student leaders sign the letter. Student Presidents at both colleges and universities are invited to sign the letter at any time, but encouraged to do so sooner for greater impact.
