Statement “At this time when millions of moms and families are struggling to pay for child care and health care, and feed and house their families, the country needs the Tax Relief for American Workers and Families Act of 2024 to become law now, while there is still time for the IRS to deliver funds from the expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC) this year. The U.S. House of Representatives passed this bill with strong bipartisan support at the end of January, but a small group of Republicans in the U.S.

Statement “Today is a reminder that Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) women continue to lose significant income to a devastating wage gap, because Congress has failed to take the action needed to close it. Year after year, that has tangible, painful consequences for AANHPI women, their families, their communities and our economy. It is outrageous that on average, for every dollar paid to a white man in our country, AANHPI women working full-time are paid just 93 cents.

Statement “The Florida Supreme Court dealt a devastating blow to the state’s moms and families by allowing one of the strictest, most cruel abortion bans in the country to take effect 30 days from now. Governor DeSantis and his allies in the state legislature demonstrated once again that they care nothing for moms and families by passing a six-week abortion ban that will now take effect on May 1st, putting the health and lives of moms and other pregnant people at grave risk.

Statement “America’s moms are outraged and terrified that the same U.S. Supreme Court that unleashed stunning levels of hardship and chaos on our nation by overturning Roe v. Wade now threatens to take away our access to medication abortion. Continued access to mifepristone, which has been used safely and effectively in the United States for more than two decades and is the only option many of us have left for abortion, is essential to the health and wellbeing of moms, pregnant people, and their families. America’s moms are counting on the U.S.
March 23, 2024
Statement “The FY24 federal budget Congress passed late last night contains some very welcome and badly needed advances, but in other ways lets moms and families down. Moms applaud the nearly $1 billion increase for child care and Head Start, which is a significant win not only for moms and families but also for businesses and our economy. Moms thank U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) and Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) for prioritizing child care and early childhood, families, child care providers, and businesses.
March 18, 2024
Statement “At this time when women’s health care is under unprecedented, devastating attack, America’s moms applaud the Executive Order to Advance Women’s Health Research and Innovation, which the Biden/Harris administration issued today to improve our knowledge about women’s health across our lifespans. We are especially grateful for the emphasis on closing gaps in knowledge about health issues affecting women of color, older women, moms, and women with disabilities, whose health and other needs have been neglected for much too long.
