It’s time to close the wage gap.
Support strong public schools by taking these actions today.
Women earn just 82 cents for every dollar White men earn—and the pay disparity is worse for Black, Hispanic, and Indigenous women. This gender gap exists across nearly all occupations, including female-dominated professions such as education. The Paycheck Fairness Act of 2021 (S. 205/H.R. 7) will help end these disparities and show our students that we believe in equal pay for equal work.
Email your senators and ask them to support the Paycheck Fairness Act of 2021.
The original Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), enacted in 1994, was a historic recognition that domestic violence devastates victims and degrades our society. Reauthorizing VAWA would maintain protections for victims, make vital investments in preventing sexual assaults, protect victims of domestic violence from intimate partner homicide, and increase victims’ access to safe housing and economic stability. The bill would also strengthen VAWA by closing the “boyfriend loophole” and barring people convicted of abusing, stalking or assaulting a dating partner from purchasing or owning a firearm.
Email your senators and tell them to support the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act.
