How Many Children Must Die? Pass HR 8 Today!

HR 8: Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021

Contact your Senator! Make it law in all 50 states that to purchase a gun you must do a background check. Without simple background checks for purchasing guns makes our society and children vulnerable to violent mass shootings as seen in Uvalde and countless other schools in this country.

This bill establishes new background check requirements for firearm transfers between private parties (i.e., unlicensed individuals). Specifically, it prohibits a firearm transfer between private parties unless a licensed gun dealer, manufacturer, or importer first takes possession of the firearm to conduct a background check. The prohibition does not apply to certain firearm transfers or exchanges, such as a gift between spouses in good faith.

Voting Rights Protect Women's Rights

Contact your Congress member! Voting is a key part of our democracy -- but we have seen increased efforts from around the country trying to infringe on Americans’ right to vote. This impacts every area of life in the United States. Without the ability to vote, we lose the ability for our country to work for everyone.

Notably for the work that the National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Club does, making it harder to vote results in fewer women voting. This means we lose our voices on issues like reproductive rights, child care, education, and employment.

Remove The Arbitrary ERA Deadline

Contact your Senator! The arbitrary deadline for the Equal Rights Amendment must be removed so that equal rights on the basis of sex are enshrined in our Constitution. Currently, there is no Constitutional backing for sex-based equality in this country.

This joint resolution eliminates the deadline for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, which prohibits discrimination based on sex. The amendment was proposed to the states in House Joint Resolution 208 of the 92nd Congress, as agreed to in the Senate on March 22, 1972.
