This week’s #5Actions includes several critically important actions for you to take where your voice is urgently needed – and closes with a recap of the powerful State of the Union, when so many of our top policy priorities were lifted in President Biden’s remarks. Our top policies were highlighted in the State of the Union in no small part because YOU (and we) have been persistently insisting that key policies like childcare, paid family/medical leave, eldercare, fair pay stay in the spotlight and get addressed. Thank you. Take a look below for quick ways to leverage your voice to help...

It’s Fall Y’all! As someone who lives in the south and had to deal with a very warm summer with lots of temperatures above 100, I can’t tell you how excited I am for sweater weather with cooler temps, changing colors, and all the things that come along with the autumnal season.

It’s been hard. While field days and graduations both signal the end of the school year and the transition into summer camps and backyard BBQs, the pandemic remains a constant force in our lives and we need to keep the pressure on Congress to address the emergency that so many of us continue to live in.

Watching the U.S. Senate confirmation hearings this week for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for U.S. Supreme Court Justice have been equal parts inspiring and frustrating. There have been times when I have wanted to stand up and cheer for Judge Jackson – and times when I’ve wanted to rage and throw things at my television because some Republican U.S. Senators were horrifyingly racist and sexist during the hearing. But, what stood out more than anything is the power that each of us have to persevere, to make a difference, and to let our voices be heard. Whether it’s an encouraging word to a...
