Statement “America’s moms are proud to celebrate the lives and contributions of trans people today, on the Transgender Day of Visibility. Moms in this country are transgender, are parents to transgender children, and supporters of the transgender community. We want trans people to be able to contribute fully to our society, and to live without facing discrimination, hate and violence.

Statement “Today’s ruling by District Court Judge Reed O’Connor puts the health of moms, children, and more than 150 million people at grave and unnecessary risk. The relentless legal and political attacks on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are cruel, outrageous, and deeply harmful.

Statement “The health and wellbeing of North Carolina moms and families is sure to improve now that state legislators passed and Gov. Roy Cooper signed Medicaid expansion into law. Some 600,000 North Carolinians will benefit directly, and many more will reap benefits from this very welcome and long overdue advance. Closing our state’s coverage gap will improve coverage and care for people in rural communities, help close racial health disparities, and improve maternal and infant health and access to mental health and substance abuse services.

News release America’s moms and families have a tremendous amount on the line as Congress works on the FY 2024 budget, with spending for vitally important health care, child care, and food and nutrition assistance programs potentially at risk. To underscore what the country’s moms have at stake, MomsRising Together is running digital ads targeting 13 Republican U.S. House members, urging them not to protect tax breaks for billionaires and big corporations and to refuse to cut spending for programs that matter deeply to working and low-income families.

Statement “Moms and caregivers across Washington applaud the state Supreme Court ruling upholding the capital gains tax, which provides the dedicated funding source for child care and early learning our state urgently needs. Washington’s tax code has long been the most regressive in the nation, putting an unfair burden on the lowest income workers by requiring them to pay the most in state and local taxes. The capital gains tax, along with policies such as the Working Families Tax Credit, are beginning to change that in ways that will boost moms, families, businesses, and our state’s economy.

Statement “U.S. House Republicans demonstrated once again today that they are badly out of touch with the country’s moms and families when they passed the badly misnamed ‘Parents Bill of Rights’ – ugly, divisive legislation designed to undermine public education by bringing censorship, bigotry and strife into our schools. This legislation may be masquerading as a bill of rights but it is actually a blueprint for censorship, bullying, division and book bans. It is all wrong for America’s moms, kids, families, and educators.

Statement “The badly misnamed ‘Parents Bill of Rights’ the House GOP plans to vote on this week is all wrong for America’s moms, kids, families, and educators. It is a recipe for censorship, bullying and book bans, and for division based on race, sexual orientation, and gender identity, masquerading as a bill of rights. If it were to become law, the Parents Bill of Rights would create more division by pitting educators against parents. It would do enormous damage to our kids, schools and communities.
March 17, 2023
Statement “This is an emergency. Too many moms are losing their lives during pregnancy and childbirth in this country. Our nation’s maternal health crisis got appreciably worse in 2021, with huge disparities and Black women suffering the worst outcomes.
March 15, 2023
Statement “North Carolina’s moms applaud the budget proposal Governor Cooper released today because it will boost North Carolina’s kids, families, businesses, and our economy. We are particularly grateful for Governor Cooper’s commitment to ensuring every child in North Carolina has access to a sound basic education, beginning in early childhood.

Statement "Today, on Equal Pay Day, moms are reminding our elected leaders: The wage gap is unacceptable, unjust, and devastating to families’ economic security and to our economy. Unless Congress takes action, women will continue to lose $400,000 on average over the course of a 40-year career to the wage gap.
