Protect Pregnant Workers' Rights

UPDATE 7/28/2021: It was announced that the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act will head into committee for a vote next week. It’s crucial that we can show this vital legislation has as much support as possible. Send your message and urge your senators to co-sponsor PWFA today.


Pregnant workers in the U.S. still lack critical protections in the workplace. And you have a chance to change that. Too many employers can fire pregnant employees – or force them to quit or take unpaid leave – instead of providing temporary and reasonable accommodations. The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) would help combat this by protecting the health and economic security of pregnant workers everywhere.

Now that PWFA has passed the House, action turns to the Senate. We can’t get to President Biden’s desk until the Senate passes the bill. Pregnant workers shouldn’t have to wait any longer: Tell your senator to co-sponsor PWFA and push for its swift passage.

Your Message
Co-sponsor the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (S. 1486)

As your constituent, I urge you to do all you can to support the bipartisan Pregnant Workers Fairness Act by co-sponsoring the bill, pushing for its swift passage, and voting “yes” when it comes to the floor. No one should have to choose between making a living and having a healthy pregnancy – especially as our country continues to grapple with the socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic which has so severely impacted women and women of color. The House has already passed the bill with a big bipartisan vote. It’s time for the Senate to move this critical, bipartisan bill as soon as possible.

I urge you to protect the health, rights, and economic security of pregnant workers and create a more equitable workplace. Please co-sponsor the bipartisan Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, ensure that the bill moves swiftly through the Senate, and vote “yes” when it comes to the floor.

Sincerely,

[First Name] [Last Name]
