Statement “Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ gratuitous move to insert himself into long-settled asylum policy in a way that will mean most victims of domestic violence no longer qualify for asylum is shocking, immoral, and the epitome of cruelty. “There will be a direct line between the U.S. Attorney General’s action today and even greater hardship and suffering for victims of domestic abuse.

Statement “The Trump administration put 130 million people at risk of losing their health coverage and care when it went to court last night to demand repeal of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA’s) protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

Statement “Sunday, June 10th marks the 55th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act. While we continue to celebrate that momentous legislative achievement more than five decades after its passage, this anniversary serves as a troubling reminder that our country still has a long way to go in closing the wage gap, reducing economic inequality and improving financial security for working women and families.

Statement “Today marks how long mothers in the United States have to work into the new year to earn what fathers were paid in the previous calendar year.

This persistent wage discrimination doesn’t just hurt moms -- it causes great financial insecurity for families and damages our economy.

Statement “The moms of America can breathe a sigh of relief now that the Republican Farm Bill failed on the floor of the House of Representatives. The rejection of this bill is a victory for America’s families, because it includes callous, new requirements for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) that would take food assistance away from people who do not work a set number of hours. The proposed changes to SNAP would have stripped food assistance away from millions, including children. Its failure is a victory for moms, families, children, our economy and our country.
