ACTION OF THE WEEK: Hands Off My Reproductive Rights

GUEST POST: FCC Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel
No one should have to choose between paying for groceries or rent and their internet bill. Thanks to the Emergency Broadband Benefit, millions of moms won’t have to. That’s my idea of a great Mother’s Day gift. Families need accessible broadband in the pandemic
STATEMENT: Moms Applaud Restoration of Temporary Protected Status to Immigrants from Haiti
“The Biden-Harris administration made the right and just decision by re-designating Haiti for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) this weekend. America’s moms support this action because we are determined that our Haitian neighbors, friends and colleagues be allowed to remain with their families and in their jobs, especially at this time when it is clearly not safe for them to return to Haiti."
