 It takes less than one minute to fight the patriarchy

Want to get involved but only have a few minutes to do so? Check out these quick actions you can take!

Support the CROWN Act

Currently, in 36 states it is still legal to discriminate against a person because of their natural or protective hairstyle. It’s long past time to protect Black and Brown girls and women in all aspects of life, including classrooms, courtrooms and boardrooms. Email your U.S. Senators NOW and urge them to support the CROWN Act to end race-based hair discrimination nationwide!

Tell Congress to extend the Child Tax Credit

Sign MomsRising’s Tax Day letter calling on Congress to #TaxBillionaires AND extend the monthly Child Tax Credit checks! Congress must do their part to lift up families and create a brighter future for our children and the economy.

Decriminalize Self-Managed and Supported Non-Clinical Abortion

Prosecutions for self-managed abortion and pregnancy loss disproportionately impact people living in poverty, immigrants, people of color, and other marginalized communities. Sign If/When/How’s petition opposing the criminalization of people who self-manage their abortions and those who help them.

Support the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

Frontline workers are most impacted by pregnancy discrimination. Overrepresented in physically demanding jobs, women of color and immigrant women are especially impacted by employers refusing to accommodate pregnant workers with medical needs. Tell your Senators to PASS the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act without delay!

Paid Leave for All

Contact your senators and representatives today and tell them to reinstate emergency paid leave and pass permanent paid family and medical leave so that families and businesses have the support they need—and so we’re never unprepared for a crisis again.

Support the Part-Time Worker Bill of Rights Act

Part-time workers experience poverty at far higher rates than full-time workers, and the economic hardship that Black women and Latinas who work part time face is even more extreme. Tell Congress to support the Part-Time Worker Bill of Rights NOW!
