We're doing it!!! Last Friday the U.S. House passed fair pay legislation. This is in no small part due to your efforts, including over 100,000 contacts to Congress by MomsRising members in the past months supporting this legislation.

Wait a minute! Hold the Fa La Las, stop the dreidel spinning, and halt the snowball fights because there is one thing we need you to do before you start the holiday merriment. Right now, yes today, Congress is putting together an economic recovery package and we need you to take a brief moment to tell them not to forget about the economic security needs of families (that's us!).
