Pregnant Women and New Moms, Unite! Oct 29, 11AM 
Join NOW-NYC and the NY Women's Equality Coalition to call on lawmakers to  pass vital protections and rights for pregnant workers on Tuesday, October 29at 11 AM on the steps of City Hall in NYC. 

This  week marks the 35th  anniversary of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.  Yet, pregnant workers  continue to be unfairly fired, demoted and their  health put at risk by  employers who do not provide temporary accommodations such as a stool to sit on or extra bathroom breaks.

A key provision of the Women Equality Agenda (WEA) would protect pregnant workers, but it has   stalled in the New York Legislature and nothing has become law. Tell your Assembly member and State Senator. Millions of women will lose if you don't pass live bills for women's equality by December 31.
