In 2014, Asma1 was kidnapped by ISIS fighters after they took over her village. She was certain she’d be trapped in their terrifying grip forever. But she realized: “If I stay, I know I will die. To live, I must escape.” For any chance at survival, she knew she had to risk her life to flee.

Today, Trump released his budget proposal, one that eviscerates funding for vital social services at home and abroad while bloating defense spending. I’ve talked to you about his cruelty budget before, and how it will impact our work with women worldwide. With you standing with us, MADRE and our grassroots partners are fighting back.

Yesterday, in one of this administration’s latest assaults on women, the State Department cut all US funding to the UNFPA, a United Nations agency that provides a wide range of lifesaving maternal and reproductive health care worldwide.
