Statement “It is terribly disappointing that the Georgia Supreme Court is allowing the state’s devastating six-week abortion ban to stand while a lower court reconsiders it. Every day access to abortion care is restricted or denied is a day when the health and lives of moms and pregnant people are endangered.

Statement “America’s moms commend the Biden/Harris administration for today’s emergency funding request for $16 billion in child care stabilization funds. This is finger-on-the-pulse action, coming at a time when the child care programs that our country relies on are being forced to raise rates or close because lawmakers allowed the pandemic relief to expire at the end of September.

Statement “Today’s Senate Finance Committee hearing is an important moment in the fight to win the kind of comprehensive paid family and medical leave program the country urgently needs. This issue has languished in Congress for much too long, and we commend Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden (D-OR) for holding this hearing and recognizing that paid family and medical leave is urgently needed, proven to work for employees and employers, and tremendously popular.

Statement “The wage gap that Latinas in this country experience is painful and punitive and it’s causing grave, lasting harm to Latina workers, moms, and families, and to our nation’s economy. It is a national disgrace that Latinas – those employed full- and part-time, working year-round and part-year – are paid a mere 52 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men in this nation; and that Latina moms are paid just 40 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic dads.

Statement “Education is the cornerstone of our multi-racial democracy and America’s moms have been horrified as rightwing forces have turned our schools and libraries into battlegrounds with baseless attacks on the teaching of honest history – including slavery and the Holocaust, appalling distortions of Critical Race Theory, vicious attacks on LGBTQIA+ students and educators, and a shameful increase in book bans.

Statement “America’s moms have been watching with concern that’s turned into full-scale alarm as Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives have sent the country careening toward a government shutdown that will cause massive hardship, chaos, and economic pain. Moms are horrified that House Republicans have utterly failed to do their most basic duty by passing a budget for Fiscal Year 2024, which begins this weekend.

Statement “The administration acted wisely, sensibly, and with compassion by extending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to some 400,000 additional Venezuelan migrants living in the United States. These parents and children cannot safely return to Venezuela, and they want and need the opportunity to remain here safely and legally and to continue supporting their families and contributing to our economy and society.
