The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is a long overdue bill to guarantee pregnant workers a right to reasonable, medically-necessary accommodations and prevent employers from pushing pregnant workers off the job.

With your help, we can take action to achieve equality for pregnant workers. The lack of adequate legal protections for pregnant workers is a key contributor to higher rates of poverty for mothers, especially mothers of color, who are now disproportionately shouldering the impact of the dual economic and public health crises.
