How can we celebrate Immigrant Heritage Month? Find out here! This Immigrant Heritage Month we must speak up for our immigrant family members, co-workers, friends, and neighbors! Right now, immigrants are under attack across the nation. Moms know how important our immigrant community members are in keeping our families and kids healthy. Immigrants make up 17% of the nation's healthcare workers, 18% of childcare workers, 38% of home health aides and 12% of the education workforce – caregivers in every sense of the word! So how do we thank our amazing caregivers and the entire immigrant...

Help us protect access to health, nutrition & housing for immigrant families and children! The Public Charge Rule the Biden administration published was a much clearer and moderate framework for immigrant families to access non-cash assistance programs like Medicaid and SNAP that help keep their children healthy! This was a welcomed change and badly needed – not just because it puts an end to an unfortunate chapter in our history during which a heartless, anti-immigrant administration used public policies to intimidate and punish immigrant families, but also because it makes clear that...

SIGN NOW to protect WIC! WIC is getting attacked from all angles. The House Republican budget not only holds our families hostage by calling for across-the-board cuts to programs like WIC in order to raise the debt ceiling to avoid default in the next two weeks, they also want to gut fruit and vegetable benefits by nearly 62%, dramatically decreasing access to nutritious foods for nearly five million women and kids enrolled in the program. With rising food costs, and increased program participation, it is more critical than ever that we strengthen WIC to provide pregnant people, new moms,...

Quick signature: Thank Biden for his Executive Order to improve care! This week, the Biden/Harris administration issued a bold, transformative, and badly needed Executive Order to improve our nation’s care infrastructure. At a time when millions of families cannot access or afford the child care, elder care, and/or disability care we need, these measures will support moms, family caregivers, care workers, businesses, communities, and our economy. Let’s keep up the MOMentum for child care, elder and disability care, paid family and medical leave, and a strong care infrastructure by thanking...

QUICK SIGNATURE: Important Update on How You Can Protect Medication Abortion! Access to mifepristone, a safe and effective abortion drug that has been used by more than five million people since the FDA approved it more than 20 years ago is still in terrible danger. Last night, the U.S. Court of Appeals of the 5th Circuit court issued a ruling that totally negates the needs of women, mothers, and people in need of immediate reproductive care! So we are teaming up with reproductive justice allies to file an amicus brief. This is our opportunity to make our voices heard and help the courts...

Send a Letter to the Editor to protect SNAP! Our families are struggling enough as it is to afford the rising costs of food. But now extremist Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives are planning to make it even harder for many families to feed their children by making massive cuts and restrictions to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or food stamps). Members of Congress are home right now for their April recess and we want to flood local newspapers with messages on the importance of protecting SNAP. Send a Letter to the Editor to your local newspaper NOW speaking...

Limited time to speak up and protect asylum! Help us stop the asylum ban! The Biden Administration is taking public comments until March 27th on its plan to resurrect a Trump-era asylum ban. We have a very limited window to submit those comments, that’s why we need you to sign our petition NOW! Together we have the power to demand that leaders do right by all children. We know what it’s like to want your children to live a life in peace and free of danger. Seeking safety for your children at our border is not a crime. We need to stand up for immigrant children and families now! We’ll submit...

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.

Plus: With the mid-term election less than 5 weeks away, we also have a special opportunity for you to help Get Out The Vote...

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...
