Urge Members of Congress to Co-Sponsor the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is common-sense legislation that would make it unmistakably clear that employers must make reasonable accommodations when workers have a medical need for them because of pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. States and cities around the country have already acted to pass these protections. Tell Congress it's time to follow suit and support the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act.

Tell Congress to Support the Paycheck Fairness Act

The Paycheck Fairness Act would help end wage discrimination by closing loopholes in the Equal Pay Act. It would make it harder for employers to pay women less for the same work, prohibit retaliation against employees who compare their pay, and require that employers who break the law fairly compensate the women they've discriminated against. Urge your Senators and Representative to co-sponsor this bill and support equal pay for women.

Tell Your Senators: Fight Against an Extreme Abortion Provision

The Senate is voting on a bill designed to prevent human trafficking — an issue that's critical to women and girls. This bill is intended to protect survivors of human trafficking. But these people need access to health care — and opponents of abortion want to use this bill to restrict that access instead. Tell your Senators to fight against this extreme abortion provision.
