Project 2025 — a far-right conservative plan to "build now for a conservative victory through policy, personnel, and training" under a conservative president in 2025 — has gone viral for its nearly 1,000-page list of alarming policies that will impact generations of Americans.


Project 2025 is led by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative organization based in Washington, DC.

Representative Jasmine Crockett recently went viral for sharing her take on Project 2025 on the House floor. She described it as a "playbook for authoritarianism."

2.Access to abortion drugs mifepristone and misoprostol would be removed nationwide.
