Planned Parenthood: NOT Replaceable

Planned Parenthood: NOT Replaceable

Low-income and rural women often don't have access to other clinics--shuttering Planned Parenthood will create a massive women's health desert in the U.S. Breast cancer screenings, family planning, STD tests, and more, GONE for millions of women. There's a myth perpetuated by anti-abortion extremists that alternatives to Planned Parenthood in underserved communities--and it's just not true. We have the facts on our side, and together, we can get the truth out. SHARE this UltraViolet infographic today!

Stop Criminalizing Survival

Stop Criminalizing Survival

75% of women in prison are survivors of domestic violence. Too many of them are imprisoned as a direct result of the abuse they survived. Most people don't even know this is happening--but we can change that. We can't stop the policies that criminalize rather than protect survivors of domestic violence until people know about it. You can help by sharing this infographic today.

Women need schedules that work!

Women need schedules that work!

Elizabeth Warren has a bold new plan to help working moms--and needs our help right away! It's called the Schedules That Work Act, and Congress could act on it at any moment--but legislators need to know the public stands behind it. Under Sen. Warren's awesome new plan, employers would no longer be able to get away with scheduling abuses--which most affect low-wage workers, especially moms--like wildly different hours from week to week and almost no advance notice of schedule changes. Will you tell Congress that scheduling abuses have gone on for far too long?

Drop the charges against Laura!

Drop the charges against Laura!

Laura Browder, a mother of two, was thrilled to get a last-minute job interview in Houston, Texas. Without enough time or money to arrange for childcare, she brought her kids with her and planted them not 30 yards away so that she could keep an eye on them as she interviewed. She got the job--then she was arrested and is now facing child abandonment charges. The media coverage of Laura's story is growing. Thousands are outraged, and if we speak out now we can get the charges against her dropped. Will you sign the petition?

Tell Congress: I stand with Planned Parenthood!

Tell Congress: I stand with Planned Parenthood!

Planned Parenthood is under attack and needs your urgent help. This is part of a systematic effort to destroy the venerable institution that serves 2.7 million women annually--with false claims and a misleadingly edited video. If supporters like us don't speak up, the extremists might succeed in shuttering Planned Parenthood clinics. But we beat back these attacks before--and won. And we need to step up again or risk being silenced. Can you sign our petition and leave a comment on why you support Planned Parenthood?

Sandra Bland deserves justice

Sandra Bland deserves justice

28 year-old Sandra Bland was driving to her new job in Waller County, TX when she was pulled over for switching lanes without a signal--a routine violation that usually ends with a ticket. But instead, officers slammed her head into the ground and arrested her. Three days later, she died in police custody. This is one of the most outrageous cases of police abuse we've seen yet. There is video showing the officer slamming Sandra to the ground as she pleads for them to stop. And the local sheriff, who claimed Sandra killed herself, was fired in a different city for multiple counts of racist and violent conduct. Together with our friends at ColorofChange, we're demanding the Department of Justice step in and investigate just what happened. Will you stand up for Sandra and sign our petition to Attorney General Loretta Lynch?
