Great news! Last month, President Biden issued an executive order to reopen HealthCare.gov, the official health insurance marketplace, so that anyone who needs health coverage can sign up. Having just surpassed 500,000 deaths in the U.S. from COVID-19, [1] it is more important than ever for everyone to have health insurance so that they are covered when they get sick. *Sign up now to help get the word out about this Special Health Care Enrollment Period!

I don’t need to tell you that our families are struggling. Everything is harder in a pandemic—affording rent, paying our bills, putting food on the table, affording childcare, and trying to do our jobs. This is why we need real solutions that put real money in the pockets of struggling families. Luckily there is an answer already working its way through the U.S. Congress: Expanding and increasing working family tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC). ***...

MomRising's Mandate for America
The challenges facing women, and especially mothers and women of color, are more serious right now than they’ve been in years. The data is in and the pandemic is having an outsized impact on women and moms, with women of color experiencing compounded harms due to structural racism. The pandemic has turned the cracks in our systems into catastrophes, exposing just how much families, communities, and our economy depend on the work of women even though that work has long been, and continues to be, vastly undervalued.

We are at a turning point in the fight against the deadly COVID-19 virus. This week marked a heartbreaking milestone with 506,000 deaths in the United States from COVID-19.

But change is coming and we have a reason to feel hopeful -- and we need YOUR help to make sure positive changes happen as fast as possible! For our #5Actions this week, we are urging Congress to move forward COVID relief ASAP. This is important because in...
CRUEL & INHUMANE - The Death Penalty
As we all come down from our sweet sugar highs of another passing Valentine's Day we at MomsRising are uplifting sentiments of love as we continue to fight for moms, parents and families during these uncertain times. This week we are inviting MomsRising members across the country to join us in recommitting to the fight for justice for families. Cornel West famously said “Justice is what love looks like in public.” His words feel both like a call to action and a moral charge for us all. Now more...

The moms of America urge leaders to immediately pass a comprehensive, robust COVID-relief package that centers the growing racial disparity in COVID-19 morbidity throughout each issue area and lifts families and our economy. Shocking data show Black, Latinx, and Native American people are dying at rates markedly higher than white Americans.

Recent years have shown us more than ever that who we elect to represent us has a big impact on our lives, our community, and our country. For too long, there have been assaults on our democracy. Unnecessary barriers to voting, gerrymandering, and intentional voter suppression of communities of color is locking too many people out of our political process, and big money and corporate interests still dominate our political system. But right now, we have a chance to fix it. The For the People Act...
