Statement “Today is a painful reminder that Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) women continue to face a punishing, unjust wage gap. On average in the United States today, AANHPI women are paid just 75 cents for every dollar paid to White, non-Hispanic men. That’s shameful, but what’s even worse is that many AANHPI communities face even wider, more damaging wage gaps, with AANHPI moms facing additional wage hits. The wage gap for AANHPI women persists across occupations, education levels and geography. Action to end unfair pay is long overdue.

Statement “Abortion is legal in the United States today but if the SCOTUS opinion leaked to Politico prevails, everything – everything – will change for every woman and every family in this country. The Court seems poised to strip away our right to privacy and with it women’s autonomy and right to be free and equal members of society, our ability to make fundamental decisions about our lives, and to access the health care we need. What for 50 years has been unthinkable will become every woman’s reality.

Statement “Millions of working families who are struggling to put food on their tables, gas in their cars, pay the rent, and buy school supplies and clothing for their kids are nonetheless filing taxes and writing checks to the U.S. Treasury today. It’s time – past time – lawmakers require our country’s billionaires and wealthiest corporations to do the same. It’s time the wealthy pay their fair share.

Statement “America’s moms are cheering the bipartisan U.S. Senate confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. This is a historic, meaningful moment that will make our highest court more reflective of our country’s rich diversity, more fair, and more just. “We welcome Jackson’s unwavering commitment to equal justice for all as the U.S. Supreme Court adjudicates issues that will shape our lives, including health care, privacy, voting rights, discrimination, policing, and more.”

Statement “America’s moms are relieved that the Biden administration is putting an end to the use – or misuse – of Title 42, a policy started by the Trump administration to deny asylum-seekers a chance to seek safety in the United States. U.S. law allows people to seek asylum at our border and this policy has undermined our own law. In fact, Title 42 is a health law that should never have been used in this way. Moms would like to see it ended today, rather than waiting till May 23.

Statement “A stillbirth is one of the most shattering experiences a family can face and, tragically, it happens some 23,500 times per year in our country. That’s approximately 65 stillbirths every day. Despite that sobering statistic, the causes of stillbirths are under-studied, and its prevention is under-funded.

Statement “There is much to praise in President Biden's FY 2023 budget proposal, including badly needed, long overdue investments that would cut the cost of child care and health care for millions of families; improve maternal health care; and help people in this country access the mental health care they need.

Statement “America’s moms look forward to a fair Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on D.C. Circuit Court Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to serve as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, followed by a favorable Committee report on this superbly qualified nominee. President Biden’s nomination of Judge Jackson was brilliant and historic. She is a fair-minded jurist with exceptional credentials, who the U.S. Senate has already confirmed three times, each time with bipartisan support.
