Featured Actions

Volunteer Month of Action for Abortion Access

Join USOW’s Volunteer Month of Action all throughout June! Each week, you will get trained on how to use digital organizing strategies to help you get involved in the fight for abortion access. Deepen your activism today and join our movement of abortion advocates fighting for a world where all people have access to the care that they need.

Support the Menstrual Equity for All Act

Period poverty currently impacts an estimated 16.9 million people who menstruate in the United States. The Menstrual Equity For All Act will work to address period poverty and provide equitable access to necessary reproductive health for all, especially for students, low-income individuals, people in prison, unhoused people, and trans people. Join USOW by taking action on the Menstrual Equity For All Act today.

Tell Our Courts: Save Mifepristone

The attack on medication abortion is not a question about safety or risk — it’s about anti-abortion advocates continuing to attempt to limit access and restrict reproductive freedom around the country. They didn’t stop at Roe v. Wade, they won’t stop at mifepristone. We need you in this fight. Add your name to our petition now to urge the Courts to save Mifepristone.

Support the Women’s Health Protection Act

The Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) would protect abortion access for people across the country. Despite the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, this critical legislation would ensure that no person faces unnecessary barriers when accessing the healthcare they need. Urge your representatives to support the WHPA!

Support Employees with Disabilities

Employees with disabilities deserve to be paid a living wage. Join the American Association for People with Disabilities in supporting the Transformation to Competitive Integrated Employment Act and urge our elected officials to recognize the importance of fair and competitive disability employment.

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.

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!

Confirm Julie Su

Julie Su has made a career out of representing not only workers, but the most vulnerable workers in America. As a young attorney representing trafficked Thai garment workers outside of Los Angeles, she won $4 million in stolen wages. Her case set a huge precedent, and that was just the beginning of a storied career. Workers deserve a labor secretary who will fiercely defend us. Sign AFL-CIO’s petition to confirm Julie Su.

Support the Equality Act

Millions of LGBTQI+ people reside in states that fail to provide them with critical legal nondiscrimination protections and that have passed an onslaught of discriminatory anti-LGBTQI+ bills. That’s why we need the Equality Act. This landmark piece of legislation would strengthen and expand federal civil rights laws to ensure clear, consistent, and comprehensive nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQI+ people in all states. Tell your members of Congress: We need the Equality Act.

Protect Native Children and Families

The Supreme Court may soon decide to weaken or overturn the Indian Child Welfare Act, or ICWA. This child welfare law has addressed centuries of genocidal attempts to destroy Native cultures and languages. We must protect Native children, families, culture, and sovereignty by codifying the Indian Child Welfare Act into your state’s law. 12 states have already codified ICWA protections into state law, urge your Governor to do the same!

Pass Paid Leave

The U.S. is one of only six countries in the world without a national paid leave policy. One in four women have returned to work within two weeks of giving birth. Join Glamour and Paid Leave for All in demanding policymakers finally commit to passing paid leave by signing their petition. Its past time for all working people to have the right to care for themselves and their families without losing a paycheck.

Support the Black Maternal Health Momnibus

The U.S. continues to be the most dangerous place to give birth among high-income countries. Black women are bearing the brunt of this crisis, losing their lives at 3 to 4 times the rate of white women. The Black Maternal Health Momnibus is a robust package of bills that serves as a solution to our nation’s maternal health crisis. Every birthing person should be able to give birth without a risk of dying from preventable causes. Let Congress know they must pass the Momnibus to address this growing crisis!

Reject the “Parents Bill of Rights”

The “Parents Bill of Rights”, is a harmful bill that actually takes away the rights of parents, kids, educators, and families. In states like Florida where versions of this bill and others have already become law, we’ve seen a tremendous amount of harmful impacts such as book bans and policies that discriminate against LGBTQ+ students. Add your name to MomsRising’s petition demanding the U.S. Senate REJECT this bill and work FOR the policies that moms and families need to thrive.

Ban Assault Weapons

Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines have repeatedly been used to commit some of the deadliest mass shootings in modern U.S. history. These weapons of war continue to contribute to the daily toll of gun violence in communities around the country. Tell Congress to act immediately to keep these dangerous weapons out of U.S. communities.

Support the EACH Act

It is long past time for our elected officials to put an end to abortion coverage bans for good. That’s why we need the EACH Act, bold legislation that ensures that each of us, however much money we make, however we get our health insurance, and wherever we live, has insurance for abortion care. Send a message to your members of Congress urging them to support the EACH Act.

Protect Trans Care

A new bill has been introduced that would criminalize the health care trans people need. You and your elected Members of Congress are our last line of defense against this national threat. We must stop any effort to criminalize trans people and the families and communities who love us. Send your message loud and clear: Tell your Members of Congress to protect trans people from discrimination.

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!

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.

Re-indigenize National Parks

Sign Native Organizer Alliance’s petition to tell new National Park Service Director Chuck Sams: Many national parks were created by violently removing Native peoples from our homelands. To make amends for past and present injustices, we must re-indigenize national parks.
