The representation gap – even more significant for women of color – poses a huge barrier to ensuring policies that support state-level abortion access WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 28, 2023 – In a newly released report, Democracy & Abortion...
Why we’re launching the Women 2024 Action Fund this Giving Tuesday
We’re launching our new Women 2024 Action Fund this Giving Tuesday because women cannot continue bearing the brunt of Congress’ dysfunction and inaction.
Here we are, approaching the end of 2023, and women are still without abortion rights nationwide, working parents are still struggling to make ends meet without access to paid leave and fair pay, and the maternal health crisis is actually deepening.
You and I both know that women do not experience these challenges equally. Women of color, and in particular Black, Indigenous, and Latina women are disproportionately bearing the brunt of Congress’s infighting, dysfunction and inaction, and are often not present at the decision-making table.
The National Partnership is determined to cut through the chaos on Capitol Hill and help ensure 2024 is focused on advancing women’s rights.
That’s why we’re launching our new Women 2024 Action Fund this Giving Tuesday.
And in recognition of Native American Heritage Month, the National Partnership will evenly split each and every gift we receive for the rest of the November with the Return to the Heart Foundation, an inspiring Indigenous women-led organization that we are honored to partner with on economic justice issues affecting Indigenous women – including pay equity, anti-discrimination and caregiving support.
Your generous gift will support TWO organizations and will help build a better America that truly values ALL women’s lives and uplifts our contributions to our society and economy.
Together, we will fight to guarantee the right to abortion, secure paid family and medical leave, improve maternal health outcomes, increase workplace equity, and forge the kind of future we all deserve.
