Statement “With a third courageous survivor coming forward with credible allegations of sexual violence by Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the administration should withdraw Kavanaugh’s nomination.

News release Hundreds of protesters, including moms, kids, immigrants and allies, rallied outside of the headquarters of JPMorgan Chase in New York City and Wells Fargo in San Francisco today to urge the banks to stop financing Geo Group and CoreCivic, two large for-profit prison corporations that are profiting off the pain and separation of immigrant families.

Statement “The days when lawmakers can dismiss the voices and concerns of women with impunity are over. The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee must halt its confirmation hearings until a full, non-partisan investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been completed.

Statement “Mean. Short-sighted. Deceptive. Harmful. Dangerous. Anti-family.

News release “The legislation U.S. Senator Ron Johnson introduced is an immoral assault on immigrant families that would sanction and continue the cruel, callous policies and human rights abuses that have horrified America’s moms and the entire country. If this bill were to pass, our government would continue tearing children away from their parents, stripping them of basic human rights protections and jailing them indefinitely in facilities that have been proven unsafe.

Statement “We await the day when President Trump shows the slightest bit of empathy or compassion for a victim of sexual harassment, sexual assault or sexual violence in any form. The President’s comments today, that he feels ‘terribly’ and ‘badly’ for Judge Brett Kavanaugh – who he called ‘a great gentlemen’ in the wake of allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a high school classmate – demonstrate, once again, that this President’s values are not our country’s values. The President’s empathy is misplaced at best.

Statement “At a time when millions of people are racing to evacuate their homes and communities as one of the most dangerous hurricanes our country has seen in decades approaches, it is shocking to learn that the Trump administration diverted $10 million that Congress designated for disaster relief and used it to support ICE’s disgraceful war on immigrants and asylum-seekers.

Statement “On average, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women in this country are paid just 87 cents to a white man’s dollar. But the AAPI community is not homogenous and distinguishing this data by ethnicity reveals additional shameful, punitive disparities. In fact, Southeast Asian women face some of the most extreme wage gaps of any racial or ethnic group in the nation. On average, Southeast Asian women are paid only 61 cents for every dollar paid to a white man.

Statement “It is truly disappointing that our country once again failed to make progress in closing the gender-based wage gap this year –– a squandered opportunity to make life better for millions of struggling women and families. We learned today that the gender-based wage gap in this country remains stuck at 80 cents, and that women of color continue to experience appreciably worse wage hits – and we know that’s true for moms too. That is, quite simply, unacceptable and it hurts not only women but also families and our economy.

Statement “America’s moms will fight the Trump administration proposal, released today, to replace the Flores Settlement Agreement with regulations that subject many more immigrant children to abuse, neglect and incarceration. Although the Trump administration has violated it time and again, the Flores Settlement requires our government to prioritize child welfare when it takes custody of immigrant children. Replacing it with these regulations would be calculated and cruel.
