Tell Congress to Support the Fair Minimum Wage Act

At just $7.25 an hour, today's federal minimum wage leaves a full-time working mom with two children thousands of dollars below the poverty line. The Fair Minimum Wage Act would give millions of workers a much-needed raise, including more than 1 in 5 working mothers, by gradually increasing the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour. Urge your Senators and Representative to support the Fair Minimum Wage Act. 

Tell Your Senators Women Deserve Affordable Birth Control

Why should we have to contend with some bosses who want to interfere in our birth control decisions by stripping away the health benefits we've earned — putting affordable birth control out of reach? Paying for the most effective and appropriate form of birth control can cost as much as a full month's pay for minimum wage workers — and women make up nearly two-thirds of these workers. Tell your Senators women deserve affordable birth control, no matter where they work.

Tell Congress to Stand with Survivors of Sexual Assault

One out of every five women is sexually assaulted while in college. Given the numbers, colleges and universities should be working nonstop to address this crisis. But many campuses provide no sexual assault response training for their staff — and dozens of colleges and universities across the country are under investigation by the U.S. Department of Education because they’ve been accused of mishandling sexual assault cases. Send a message to Congress urging them to support survivors of campus sexual assault. 

Tell Congress to Fund Child Care

Congress reauthorized the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) for the first time in nearly 20 years. Although this vote marks an important step toward building a strong early learning system, we're not done yet: Congress still needs to provide the funding necessary for the program to truly help children and families succeed. This funding is critical for children and families. Urge your Senators and Representative to support vital child care funding.

Urge Your Members of Congress to Co-sponsor the Schedules That Work Act

Urge your Members of Congress to co-sponsor the Schedules That Work Act. This bill is an important step toward providing baseline labor protections from abusive scheduling practices and giving workers a say in their schedules. This bill would make our economy work better for everyone. Please urge your Members of Congress to sign on as a co-sponsor.
