    Senate Action on VAWA Needed NOW!

    The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) provides much needed crucial protections for women in the U.S. and around the world! Reauthorization of VAWA has passed the House and is now stalled in the Senate.

    Reauthorize VAWA with key improvements

    H.R. 1620, the bipartisan VAWA Reauthorization Act of 2021 was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives on March 8, 2021. The bill takes a holistic approach, addressing the complex realities of survivors’ lives. It maintains established protections, while also making key improvements by addressing persistent gaps and improving the current VAWA provisions. - read more -

    • "Take Action" Online Tool -- This tool is open to the public. It will help you to Tell your Senators to Step Up for the ERA!

    NO MORE DELAY ON THE ERA!

    "THERE IS NO DEADLINE ON EQUALITY""
                        -Representative Jackie Speier

    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.

    At this moment, the U.S. IS NOT a part of the 80% of UN member states that have provisions in their Constitutions to address gender equality. If we want to continue to be considered a leader on the world stage then the ERA needs to be ratified immediately.

    Passing the ERA would take out gender-specific language in all laws and make them more gender-neutral. This will benefit EVERYONE in this country - men, women, and non-binary people alike. Once ratified, it will raise gender to be considered a suspect classification like race, religion, and national origin. The ratification of the ERA will ensure that gender is not a barrier to success and equal recognition under the law for anyone in this country.

    TELL YOUR SENATORS TO REMOVE THE ARBITRARY ERA DEADLINE

    • "Take Action" Online Tool - This tool is open to the public. It will help you to Tell your Congress Member to protect equal access to voting!

    Voting Rights Protect Women's Rights

    Voting is a key part of our democracy. Since the most recent election, 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 U.S.. Without the ability to vote, we lose the ability for our country to work for everyone.

    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. Not only do women, in general, lose their power as a voting block, but marginalized women such as women of color and queer women also lose their power to fight for their rights - rights that so often in this country have been violated.

    All people, especially women, deserve to have equal decision-making power in our country. It is up to you to protect the rights we hold dear in our democracy. Call on your Congress Member to protect equal access to voting!

    Here's How You Can Take Action

    1. Fill out the form with your information so you can be connected with your members of Congress.

    2. The system will help you email, call, tweet and even send a video message to your legislators. You will also be provided with suggested text and scripts, or you can add your own personal touch!

    For example:

    TWEET suggestions:

    Be sure to tag @nfbpwc

    Congress must do better and take meaningful action to protect equal access to voting!

    Suggested PHONE SCRIPT:  Hello, my name is (Your Name) and I am a constituent of (Congress member's name). I am calling them to urge them to work toward protecting equal access to voting. We have seen too many legislative actions being taken to make it harder for people to vote. (As a member of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women), I am especially disturbed by the negative impact these actions have on the rights of women and commonly disenfranchised groups. We are way past the time for concrete action on this matter. History is watching. Please do your part. 
    Suggested VIDEO PROMPTS:

    There are too many laws being passed that discriminately decrease access to voting

    Congress has the ability to change this

    Voting rights protect women's rights

    As a member of The National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs I support equal access to voting
