This is red hot! Monday afternoon (September 15th) the U.S. Senate will vote again on the Paycheck Fairness Act. This vote will determine whether or not the bill will move forward for a final up and down vote on the Senate floor.
We have to keep the pressure on our Senators. We have to make it clear to them that we’re watching, we’re listening, we’re demanding that they do more than play political football with our paychecks.

Call your U.S. Senators and urge them to vote YES to move the Paycheck Fairness Act forward for a full Senate vote! It’s easy! Just call this number, and we’ll connect you to your U.S. Senator’s office: 855-976-1858
*Not near a phone? Don’t worry! You can still make your voice heard via email!
**Just click here to send a quick EMAIL message to your Senators and we’ll deliver it right away!
If you do have time to make a call, then when you dial the number above, you’ll hear a short recording from me reminding you of what to say when you talk to your Senator’s receptionist. Then, we’ll connect you directly to their office. That’s it – simple but powerful.
Making your voice heard today–by either phone or email, or both–is important: When U.S. Senators hear directly from constituents, they know that it’s an important issue that you (a voter in their district) will continue to follow.
Why is your voice needed now? Last week, for the first time ever, the U.S. Senate voted in favor of moving to a full debate of the Paycheck Fairness Act, by a vote of 73-25.  This historic win, a first of many hurdles for the bill, is due in no small part to your messages, letters, calls, testimony, shared stories, and contact with leaders.
It’s not over. Now the U.S. Senate has a chance to take the next step and do the right thing: Move the bill forward to a final up-or-down vote for passage.
**Look, we don’t often ask MomsRising members to make phone calls. We know you’re busy and we know that people don’t like to make calls. But we wouldn’t ask if it wasn’t important.
This is a critical vote to move equal pay forward, but they won’t do it if they don’t get a lot of heat from their constituents across the country telling them to stop playing games with our paychecks.
Making a quick call is a very powerful way to get that message across.
Call now: 855-976-1858 – it takes just two minutes or less!
**And if you can’t make a call right now, just click here to send an EMAIL message to your U.S. Senators right away!
Passing the Paycheck Fairness Act is a real opportunity to help close the wage gap and boost our national economy–and we expect that those U.S. Senators who are genuinely committed to equal pay will help move the bill forward to a final up-or-down vote.
It’s time (actually, it’s way past time for this to happen).
Join me in using one of our most effective tools for change—our voices—and pick up your phone to make the call now. 855-976-1858.
Together, our voices are powerful!
