Amid the daily jumble of syntactically-challenged tweets and dubious legal advice, it can be hard to keep track of the actual policies coming out of the Trump administration. But it's dangerous when changes that touch people's lives go unnoticed. So to help voters stay on top of the ways women's rights and access to health care are shifting, Planned Parenthood created a website that lays out each action the administration has taken since Trump's inauguration.

The heart of TrackingTrump.org is a timeline detailing rollbacks of birth control coverage or comprehensive sex ed and the appointments of staffers opposed to LGBT rights. Each entry leads to more information, either about the appointee and their track record on health issues or the policy being affected, like the global gag rule, which prevents U.S. aid to international NGOs that mention family planning practices.

From there, visitors can read news stories about the events from outlets as varied as The Hill or The New Yorker. Infographics illustrate the relationship each staffer has to the White House (from whence all policy flows), the government bodies that make and enact policy and ultimately, the voters.

Rather than use Planned Parenthood's signature pink, the site is gray, black and yellow. The interface is clean, and the information is easy to read--in contrast to the disorganization of an overclocked news cycle. Planned Parenthood's longtime agency partner Work & Co put the site together in about a month, and it's built to scale up as new developments unfold.
