Statement “Florida moms support public education. We want our tax dollars to support strong public schools that welcome all students, teach honest history, recognize the strength in our diversity, and provide essential resources to the teachers who work so hard to help our children learn and grow.

Statement “Each day, across all occupations and education levels, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) women are robbed of hard-earned income by one of the most damaging, punitive wage gaps in the country. NHPI women working full-time, year-round are paid just 65 cents for each dollar paid to white men. When part-time workers are included, that figure falls to just 61 cents on a white man’s dollar.

Statement “Millions of moms, grandmothers, and families will be better off because Medicare is going to negotiate for lower prices for ten widely used heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other medications. This is a triumph for the Biden/Harris administration, which fought hard for this, and it will provide a real boost for America’s families.

Statement “The mass shooting in Jacksonville on Saturday is heartbreaking and even more devastating because the racism and easy access to weapons of war that drove it are tragically taking lives, causing grave harm to communities, and escalating in our country.

Statement “While mifepristone remains available in the United States, it is disgraceful that another conservative court today ruled to limit access to a medication that has been used safely in this country for more than 20 years. The ruling today won’t change access right now; the case now goes to the U.S. Supreme Court. But no court should restrict access to an FDA-approved medication that has been proven safer than penicillin, Tylenol, and Viagra; and is the only option many of us have left for abortion.

Statement “Following the economic disruption the pandemic caused, women are back in the labor force in record numbers, but women in general – and moms in particular – are experiencing a punitive wage gap that depresses our wages and causes great harm to our families. This shameful wage gap persists because Congress has failed to prioritize the policies and investments needed to close it.

Statement “The drug pricing provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act offer enormous and badly needed benefits that will improve the health and economic security of moms and families. But it is only the beginning of what we need to prevent moms from being forced to ration or go without the medications they need when a child has diabetes, a parent has cancer, or another family member falls ill. We need Congress to pass the Lowering Drug Costs for American Families Act to continue the progress.

Statement “Tomorrow is a painful reminder that Black women must work nearly 19 months to be paid what White men are paid in 12. The wage gap is an appalling symptom of structural racism and sexism in our country, and it causes real harm to hard-working Black women, families and communities. This unjust, unjustifiable wage gap will persist until Congress takes meaningful action to close it.
