Power Up MomsRising: All Gifts Doubled!
Democracy is more than a moment...it’s something we do throughout the days and years. And THIS year, despite a global pandemic and juggling more than seems possible each day, you powered a more massive wave of mom voter engagement than we ever dreamed possible. You are a true superhero. Yes, you! Together, we keep marching, keep rising, keep sharing our power so that every mom, child and family can experience racial, economic and gender justice. We have real MOMentum with tens of thousands of volunteers who stepped up to get out the #MomsVote! We plan to keep it going into 2021-- to keep raising our voices and building collective power.
Sign our petition telling Congress: #ReliefCantWait
Unless Congress takes action within the next few weeks, 12 million people will be immediately kicked off of unemployment insurance and 19 million renters will lose their homes. This is all at the same time that 1 in 4 children are living in hunger because of the impacts of COVID and cases of the virus are soaring in every single state—and only expected to go up as we head into the holidays and colder months. This is a crisis on top of a crisis and we need leaders in the U.S. Congress to pass a robust, comprehensive COVID-relief package IMMEDIATELY!
Just a few days left for Open Enrollment for health care in 2021!
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage our communities, many people are losing their employer sponsored health care coverage just when they need it the most. It’s time to use our outside voices for health care to spread the word about Open Enrollment at HealthCare.gov for 2021!

Congress must #SaveChildcare
A record number of moms are being pushed out of the workforce and as COVID numbers rise and with CARES funding disappearing at the end of the year, childcare providers and families need help now to ensure they survive into the new year. At least $50 billion is necessary to stabilize the child care and $7 billion in funding through the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) sector and it is needed now. Recent analysis shows that at least $9.6 billion a month is needed to fully fund existing programs to pay all their staff, be prepared to reopen at the appropriate time and eliminate cost burdens for families whose providers are closed. It is essential that Congress prioritize supporting families’ access to safe, high-quality, and affordable childcare.
