The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is a common-sense piece of legislation that would require employers to make reasonable accommodations when workers need them because of pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions — just as they are already required to do for disabilities.
35 years ago the Pregnancy Discrimination Act was signed into law. But we obviously have a lot more work to do. That's why we need to generate enough support to get the attention of our Senators.

Dear [Decision Maker],
I urge you to support pregnant workers by becoming a co-sponsor of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. This bill would require employers to make the same sorts of reasonable accommodations for pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions that they are already required to make for disabilities, ensuring that pregnant women can continue to do their jobs and support their families.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
