Tell the House: It's Time for an Up-or-Down Vote on Paycheck Fairness!
In June 2013, AAUW and the AAUW Action Fund Lobby Corps led nearly 75 volunteers from various organizations to Capitol Hill so they could lobby Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act. You can help sustain the momentum from this lobby day by contacting your representative now and urging him or her to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.
The participants in the lobby day were multi-generational (including some small children!) to demonstrate that women from all generations are demanding an update to the Equal Pay Act, a law that hasn't been updated in generations despite major changes in the workforce. With the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act still fresh in our minds, the timing is perfect - and you can help us make it happen.
Can you take two minutes to contact your representative and keep the drumbeat going after our visits to Capitol Hill?
