Care advocates, assemble!

This was the rallying cry at our #CareCantWait coalition event at the the U.S. Capitol. The gathering gave a much-needed shot of adrenaline to building support for President Biden's Build Back Better plan.

Check out highlights below, plus good news on the PUMP Act and the Action of the Week!

Keep's making a difference! 





STATEMENT: U.S. House Passage of PUMP Act Can Improve Health of Moms and Babies, But U.S. Senate Must Pass It, Too

"Our country's track record of supporting breastfeeding is abysmal. The PUMP Act is the strongest lactation workplace law ever to be considered by Congress." - MomsRising Senior Campaign Director Tina Sherman


ACTION OF THE WEEK: Tell Congress that everyone deserves to have health care coverage!

Even amidst a pandemic, there are still 12 states that have refused to expand Medicaid to low-income adults under the Affordable Care Act. Congress is currently considering a provision in the Build Back Better package that would permanently, quickly, and comprehensively close this harmful coverage gap. Urge your members of Congress to support it!
