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

  1. Sign up for a canvass or phone bank

This National Action comes from Swingleft.org.

Weekend plans? Swing Left has you covered: knock on doors with friends and other Swing Left volunteers or join a phone bank! Your efforts to boost voter turnout could make all the difference in November’s most competitive races. 

2. Tell Congress to support policies that protect access to reproductive healthcare

This State Action comes from MomsRising.org.

AB 518 will update California's Paid Family Leave program so that qualifying California workers can receive Paid Family Leave benefits to care for their chosen or extended family member. It is time to update our laws to reflect how California families care for each other!

3. Add Your Name: Commit To Vote!

This National Action comes fromEverytown.org.

2024 is a life-or-death election year. This November, hard-fought wins and future legislative progress are on the line. We need to elect Gun Sense Candidates who will end our gun violence crisis. We need you to make your voice heard at the ballot box—because the stakes could not be higher.

Together, we can fight for a safer future for our communities. Add your name and pledge to vote.

4. Tell Congress: Protect Families Seeking Asylum

This National Action comes from ACLU.org.

Right now, our lawmakers are considering writing extreme anti-immigrant policies. The right to seek asylum is protected by international and domestic law, yet some Members of Congress want to deeply restrict this right and write other harmful anti-immigrant policies into law. Make no mistake: These measures are harmful and ineffective and will hurt families who have long been part of our communities and people coming to the United States for the first time.

We must tell our Members of Congress that this is not who we are: Send a message today and let them know that sacrificing families and children seeking protection for short-term political points is unacceptable.

 

5. Tell Congress: It's beyond time for equal pay in our country

This National Action comes from EqualRights Advocates.

Support equal pay by emailing your Congressional Representatives about the PFA.

The Paycheck Fairness Act (PFA) will help combat pay discrimination that continues to harm the economic security of women, particularly women of color, and their families.

Why we need the PFA

Pay discrimination is a persistent problem in our country that perpetuates poverty and robs women of what they've earned. The Paycheck Fairness Act would update and strengthen the Equal Pay Act of 1963 to ensure that it provides robust protection against sex-based pay discrimination. Among other provisions, this bill:

Bars retaliation against workers who voluntarily discuss or disclose their wages

Closes loopholes that have allowed employers to pay women less than men for the same work without any important business justification related to the job
