 Big doins' this week! 

We're all getting on the horn to talk about women in the US, how to get to fair pay, why families need a paid leave program they can count on, and what paid sick days would mean for the economic security of moms and dads.  Just like child care, these issues connect public policy to the economy and to our well-being and that of our families.  And it's really cool - once you RSVP, they will call YOU!

On Wednesday, January 29th, the National Association of Mothers' Centers, our allies, and champions in Congress invite you to join  an unprecedented national conversation about these issues and the changes that will advance income equality and economic security for women and families in America:

WHAT: Let's Talk About It: Advancing women and families in 2014

A National Tele-Townhall Event on fair pay, paid leave, and access to child care

WHEN: Wednesday, January 29, 2014

 Anniversary of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

8:30 p.m. ET

WHERE: From the comfort of your phone

No numbers to dial, we’ll call you to connect to the event


Fair pay, paid sick days, paid family and medical leave, and affordable child care are fundamental policy reforms that need to be on the national agenda. Hear from – and ask questions of – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Lilly Ledbetter, working women from across America, and Congresswomen championing these critical issues. 

Help make 2014 a year focused on advancing women and families in America.

RSVP now to join the Wednesday, January 29th call:
