State Abortion Bans Threaten 6.5 Million Latinas
The decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has harmed millions of people across the nation, impeding their access to abortion, disrupting their economic futures, and putting their health and even their lives at risk.

Discrimination While Pregnant
Any pregnant person may experience pregnancy discrimination. But because of the ways that racism, sexism and ableism have structured the United States economy, pregnant workers’ need for accommodations — and the harms they may face if unable to access accommodations — can differ significantly. Women and people of color are especially likely to be in jobs that are higher risk and lack adequate health and safety protections.
Historic Investments in Good Infrastructure Jobs Can’t Leave Women Behind
The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) provides one of the most significant investments in the creation of good jobs in recent years.

Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a decision that is about access to essential healthcare, but also much more than that.

The availability of paid sick days for medication abortion is an essential component of ensuring that people can access care that best suits their needs and preferences, and do so in ways that protect both their health and economic security.
Called to Care
Too often in our country’s history, the ability to take time to care for yourself and others while maintaining your economic security has been predominantly reserved for the white and wealthy few. Yet, it is through providing care for one another that we knit together the bonds of our families and communities.
America’s Workers Must Have Paid Sick Days and Paid Leave to Open the Economy Safely
Gaps in newly-enacted federal coronavirus legislation leave up to 106 million workers nationwide without emergency leave protections, with women and workers of color more likely to be affected.
Paid Sick Days Enhance Women’s Abortion Access and Economic Security
Everyone needs time to access health care without risking their economic stability. Paid sick days allow a person to recover from short-term illnesses, access preventive care, undergo a basic medical procedure or care for a sick child or family member. Yet, more than 34 million people working in the private sector don’t have a single paid sick day and, for too many of them, taking time away from work to attend to their health means risking their jobs and financial stability.
