The Feminist To-Do List

 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!

Tell Your Representatives to Invest in Funding to Support Survivors

The President’s 2024 budget proposes record breaking investments for domestic and sexual violence programs across the country, including increased funding for The Hotline. Survivors across the country need access to services and support now. Tell your Members of Congress to sign onto Dear Colleague Letters Supporting The National Domestic Violence Hotline and programs serving survivors in the Department of Health and Human Services Now!

Help Stop the Asylum Ban

The Biden Administration is taking public comments until March 27th on its plan to resurrect a Trump-era asylum transit ban. This transit ban would require desperate asylum seekers to apply for protection in a country they transited through, which could potentially be as dangerous as the one they left behind, before requesting asylum at our border. Sign MomsRising’s letter urging the administration to stop this transit ban.

Tell Your Senator to Oppose Michael Delaney’s Nomination

In order to end rape culture, we must advocate for legislative and cultural change at every possible opportunity. That’s why we’re taking action and calling on our senators to oppose Michael A. Delaney’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Join End Rape On Campus (EROC) and tell your senator to oppose Michael Delaney’s nomination.

Tell Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act

Ending the wage gap is essential to creating a future where working women of color, nonbinary people, and our families can thrive on our own terms without worrying about economic hardships. Women of color, moms, and LGBTQ+ workers experience larger pay gaps than their peers, are more likely to be the primary or sole breadwinners in their families, have been affected by the pandemic job losses and care responsibilities, and are overrepresented in low-wage jobs. Tell congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act today!

Protect Trans and Intersex Women and Girls

The House of Representatives will soon vote on a shameful bill that attempts to ban transgender and intersex girls and women from participating in girls’ and womens’ school sports. H.R. 734’s sole purpose is to attack trans girls and women, denying them a full education by barring them from playing school sports and shutting them out from the benefits that school sports offer, like building community. Tell Your Representatives we need to act to protect trans and intersex girls and women.

Help Expand Access to Birth Control

The Biden administration proposed a rule that could improve access to contraceptives for people whose employer or university objects to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirement that contraception be covered in health insurance plans. It’s important that the Biden administration hears from you now—so people can get access to no-cost contraception. Tell the Biden administration that employers and universities should not be able to determine the birth control we receive.

Protect SNAP

One of the strongest tools our nation has in combating hunger is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, also known as food stamps). Unfortunately, this vital program is under attack, threatening the food security of millions of families. Join MomsRising in speaking out to protect SNAP and the millions of people that depend on this vital program to feed their families.

Pledge to be an Abortion Advocate

One in three American women now live in states where they no longer have control over their bodies. Now more than ever, we need abortion advocates to join us in an effort to protect abortion access. Pledge to be an abortion advocate with USOW today, and to take your activism to the next level.

Demand Access to Medication Abortion

A federal judge may rule at any moment to overturn the FDA’s approval of a critical medication abortion pill. If he does, it could be BANNED nationwide. Medication abortion is the most common form of abortion care in the U.S. It’s safe and effective, and it should be readily available everywhere. Join Women’s March in telling the courts to stay out of the way of our medication access!

Support the People’s Response Act

Now, more than ever, it is crucial for Congress to step up and support new inclusive, holistic, and health-centered approaches to dealing with crises that will reduce harm and truly keep our communities safe. Urge your representatives to support the People’s Response Act to truly transform public safety in the United States.

Pass Policies that Protect Families

It’s a new year and we have a new Congress; this means new opportunities to pass the policies that matter most to our families! Join MomsRising by using your voice to make sure Congress prioritizes the needs of our families, communities, and economy.

Support the Equal Rights Amendment

New joint resolutions on the ERA were introduced in both the House and Senate that will affirm the validity of the Equal Rights Amendment and remove the time limit on the ERA, making it clear that there is no time limit on equality. Ask your members of Congress to sign on in support of the resolution!

Georgia Needs a Reproductive Freedom Act

Georgia needs a Reproductive Freedom Act! Sign Amplify Georgia’s petition demanding that Georgia lawmakers repeal the bans that stand between us and our care and affirm our right to decide.

Protect Student Debt Cancellation

With the Supreme Court expected to decide on whether debt cancellation can move forward, now more than ever, we need to make our voices heard! Join Student Debt Crisis Center in telling the Supreme Court how student debt impacts you and why you support debt cancellation. Sharing your experience will be critical to protecting President Biden’s debt cancellation plan and future relief.

Abortion Bans Are Racist

The criminalization of abortion care hurts Black and brown people the most. Everyone deserves to make their own healthcare decisions with support and compassion, not punishment. Join URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity in saying NO to racist abortion bans!

Support the Working for Immigrant Safety and Empowerment Act

The Working for Immigrant Safety and Empowerment (WISE) Act is a comprehensive bill that extends critical immigration benefits to immigrant survivors of violence.
