1. Email your Member of Congress and ask them to support HR 3255, the Supporting Working Moms Act of 2017. Or if your MoC is one of the co-sponsors, email to thank them.
2. Email your Senators and ask them to support S 2122 the Supporting Working Moms Act of 2017. Or if your Senator is one of the co-sponsors, email to thank them.
We recently contacted our Members of Congress asking them to support Rep. Speier’s resolution which would require all representatives and staff to complete anti-sexual harassment training. This resolution passed the House unanimously on Wednesday, and a similar version has also recently passed the Senate. If you like, contact your MoC to thank them for supporting this measure.
