Act Now! Imminent Vote on Fair Pay Legislation

From the National Organization for Women:

Two important bills, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act (H.R. 11) and the Paycheck Fairness Act (H.R. 12), will be among the House of Representatives' first votes of the 111th Congress. Please take time now to call or email your representative and urge her/him to vote for these bills that will help reduce wage discrimination against women. The votes could come as early as Wednesday, Jan. 7, but might possibly be held off until Friday, Jan. 9.

Regardless, please send your message -- by sending an email or calling your House member's office. The U.S. Capitol switchboard number is 202-224-3121; just ask to be connected to your representative's office and leave a message of support for these bills.
