We update this page every three weeks so check back for updates and new actions to take or sign up for our newsletter to receive alerts. Some of these actions come from our coalition partners and others are NCJW actions.

  1. Hold Los Angeles D.A Candidates Accountable

 

This action comes from NCJW|LA

Are you a passionate advocate for criminal and prison reform, economic justice, and inequalities in our judicial systems? Well, it is time to have your voices heard! NCJW|LA will be hosting a D.A candidate forum in partnership with the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles County, the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles and the L.A. Coalition for D.A Justice & Accountability and we are asking the community to submit questions to ask all three candidates seeking election.

Submit your questions: nabila@ncjwla.org

(Disclaimer) questions will be screened, and submitting questions does not guarantee it will be used.

2. Tell Congress: Protect pregnant workers' rights

This action comes from ACLU

Pregnant workers in the U.S. still lack critical protections in the workplace. Too many employers believe they can fire pregnant employees, force them to quit, or take unpaid leave instead of providing temporary accommodations that would allow them to remain productive employees and maintain a healthy pregnancy.

The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act would help protect the health and livelihoods of pregnant workers. Tell your member of Congress to cosponsor the PWFA now.

3. Tell Businesses to Act for Gun Safety

This action comes from MomsRising together

It’s time for large American employers to also take responsibility for the gun safety of their workers, customers, and communities, and do everything they can to keep us safe from the estimated 393 million firearms in civilian hands. Sign on to our message to American Business today!
