Help pass the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act via your local newspaper!
Members of Congress and their staff regularly read the local newspapers from their home districts and states to stay in touch with what their constituents care about and want them to prioritize.
Nobody should ever have to choose between their job and the health of their pregnancy, but too many workers still face this impossible choice today.
Using our easy online tool, can you submit a letter to your local paper about the importance of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act? We will walk you through each step and provide sample content and talking points!
How is your heart today?
Everything has been a lot and through it all we’ve kept going. We each have our own stories, and our unique ways of rising. This Valentine’s Day we wanted to reach out and check in, because members like you are the heart and soul of this MomsRising movement and we care about you!
Take Action: Tell Congress to Pass the People’s Response Act Now!
The People’s Response Act provides the resources and assistance to scale up these efforts and truly transform public safety in the United States. It would reframe how we think about and respond to crisis situations in this country with an approach that meets the demands and needs of our communities and this moment.
End Police Violence!
Police violence is an epidemic that is so entrenched in American society that we as a people have become desensitized to it. There needs to be a change. Support MomsRising as we take a stand against police violence and share your own experiences.
Quick signature to lower drug prices!
No matter our race, place, or politics, most of us want similar things: to make a good living, to care for our families, and to have the best chance possible to be healthy. But for far too many people, having affordable access to life-sustaining and life-saving medications is a struggle. It is past time for Congress to act to rein in high drug prices!
