Co-sponsor the Paycheck Fairness Act!

Dear [Decision Maker],

I urge you to co-sponsor the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Women deserve and need every dollar they earn -- especially when women's wages play such a critical role for our families, communities and economy.

Yet, even today, women in the United States are paid only 80 cents for every dollar paid to men. Black women are paid 63 cents and Latinas are paid just 54 cents for every dollar paid to white men. And Asian women are paid 85 cents for every dollar paid to white men, although some ethnic subgroups of Asian women fare much worse.

The Paycheck Fairness Act is critical legislation that would close loopholes and help combat and undo discriminatory pay practices. It is a common sense and reasonable policy that should be a priority.

Please show your support for fair pay today!

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
