EACH Woman Act Action Toolkit
On January 31st, 2017, Congresswomen Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), alongside Pro-Choice Caucus Co-Chairs Diana DeGette (D-CO) and Louise Slaughter (D-NY) and 100 other members of Congress introduced the EACH Woman Act, critical legislation that increases access to safe & affordable abortion care by lifting abortion coverage bans. The EACH Woman Act is our vision and our message to the Trump-Pence administration: we are fighting for a future where our families can thrive, which includes women making our own decisions about pregnancy and parenting.
Here are a few ways you can take action to show your support for this legislation.
