Statement “While we are glad that Congress was able to reach a bipartisan agreement to keep the U.S. government open and temporarily funded, lawmakers neglected to address some key funding shortfalls affecting millions of families with young children. There are two urgent crises facing the country’s moms and young families, with grave ramifications for businesses and our economy, and Congress missed an opportunity to address both in its Continuing Resolution.

Statement “Hungry babies. New moms without breastfeeding support and without the assistance they need to afford formula. Toddlers going without fresh, nutritious produce because their families can’t afford it. All that will be commonplace if Congress doesn’t provide emergency funds for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) in the government funding package it must pass in the next week to avert a painful, unnecessary government shutdown.

News release In red, blue, and purple states, voters across the country sent a clear and convincing message Tuesday rejecting an extremist education agenda, which censors our history, bans books, harms our students, stigmatizes trans students, LGBTQIA+ students and educators, and students with LGBTQIA+ parents, and would give future generations fewer rights than their parents had.

Statement “In yesterday’s election, voters across the country stood up for kids and repudiated Moms for Liberty and its bigoted agenda of book bans, discrimination, and taking away our choices. Let’s be clear: Moms for Liberty has never represented America’s mothers and families – and its effort to ‘mom-wash’ an agenda of hate is failing.

Statement “By passing a constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to abortion and other reproductive health care, Ohio’s pro-choice majority today delivered a clear, unmistakable repudiation of the Republican anti-choice agenda and the tricks and deceits Republicans used to try to deny Ohioans this basic health care. Ohio now joins six other states, including Republican-leaning Kansas, Montana, and Kentucky, in rejecting the anti-abortion laws Republicans are trying to force on us all.

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.
October 25, 2023
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 SAFE Children Act, which Governor Newsom signed on Friday, is a groundbreaking advance for youth justice and safety. We are thrilled that California has become the first state to end the practice of transferring children into the adult criminal justice system for violent offenses committed against the child’s trafficker or abuser.
