Statement “By invoking the nuclear option to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court without bipartisan support, U.S. Senate Republicans have moved our country in a dangerous direction, undermining our democratic institutions and imperiling the rights of women, LGBTQ+ people, communities of color, immigrants and workers.

Statement “Stephen Bannon has a history of promoting anti-semitism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, transphobia and white supremacy - and has dedicated his life to dividing Americans. He was wholly unfit to serve on the National Security Council and his removal from the council makes us all safer. For months, moms across the country have spoken out against Bannon’s appointment to chief White House strategist and his position as a political appointee on the National Security Council - and today they applaud his removal from that post.

Statement “Today, the Maryland House of Delegates passed HB 1, the Healthy Working Families Act, a badly needed earned sick days bill that will increase financial security and provide peace of mind to working families across the state, and strengthen the state’s economy. The bill is now on its way to Governor Hogan’s desk and we urge him to rethink his opposition to this commonsense legislation and sign it into law immediately. The Maryland Healthy Working Families Act protects twice as many working people as the Governor's proposal and boosts families and the economy.

Statement “Today is Equal Pay Day 2017 – the day that marks the appalling fact that it takes 15 months for women to be paid what men are paid in a year. It takes mothers and women of color even longer. That's just shameful.    “And while we find the very need for Equal Pay Day incredibly frustrating, we are at the same time inspired that Sen. Patty Murray and Rep. Rosa DeLauro persist in their efforts to close the gender wage gap and have chosen today to reintroduce the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Statement “Neil Gorsuch’s appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court would move the Court in a dangerous direction, one that threatens the rights of women, LGBTQ+ people, people of color and workers.

Statement “Today’s incredible win demonstrates the true power of the grassroots movement that has sprung up to resist the Trump administration and the GOP’s destructive agenda to gut health care. This is a resounding, major victory for moms, families, our economy and our country. It is proof that when we #KeepMarching together, we are unstoppable.

Statement “In a callous attempt to win over the more extreme members of the conservative right, US House Republican leaders are reportedly adding several dangerous provisions that threaten the health and wellbeing of women and families to their health care bill. The American Health Care Act was already a terrible bill that would make health insurance less affordable, less accessible, and less comprehensive, taking coverage away from tens of millions of families and offering fewer protections at higher costs to those who still have health insurance.

Statement “Once again, our nation’s legal system has done its job in recognizing that while the Trump Administration may have changed some of its language around the controversial Muslim travel ban - their intent remained the same. And that intent is a violation of our U.S. Constitution and our country’s values. This new Executive Order is sadly more of the same: Unconstitutional state-sanctioned Islamophobia and discrimination that betrays our values and contributes nothing to security.
