Reproductive Rights & Health
It's ridiculous and alarming that birth control and basic health services are still "controversial." We're leading the fight to protect women's reproductive rights, including abortion, access to contraception and health care, particularly in low-income communities and communities of color.

Ending Child Sexual Abuse
Whether it's a colleague, friend or family member, it is likely that you know someone who has been affected by child sexual abuse. Each of us has a role to play in breaking the silence and supporting solutions. Preventing child sexual abuse is within our power, and we are working to provide information, education and resources to keep our children safe.
Prevention is in our Power
Forty years ago, a woman would earn only 56% of what a man would earn in an identical job. Today, the pay gap is stuck at 77%. We aren't satisfied, and we won't quit until women earn equal pay for equal work.
LGBTQ people continue to face discrimination on multiple levels. We're helping institutionalize equality by advancing health care access for LGBTQ communities, supporting policies that promote economic stability for LBGTQ people living in poverty, and guaranteeing LGBTQ women equal recognition in relationships and domain over their bodies, including protection from violence.
Affordable Child Care & Quality Child Care Jobs
Did you know that the full-time child care costs for an infant eat up 41% of the average single mother's income? Or that the very people we rely on to take care of our children earn some of the lowest wages in the country? Affordable child care and quality child care jobs are essential to the health and stability of U.S. families. We need policies that support working parents and providers and reflect real family values.
