Tell Congress to publish the Equal Rights Amendment!

Tell Congress to publish the Equal Rights Amendment!

If the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)--a constitutional amendment–had been passed when the suffragists first introduced the concept at the turn of the 20th century, this would have saved generations of women from discrimination and heartache like the wage gap, lack of care infrastructure to fully participate in the formal workplace, attacks on our reproductive rights, and more. The good news is all of the requirements of Article 5 to establish an amendment to the Constitution have been met. Congress just needs to officially publish it!

CNN to stop platforming abortion lies!

CNN to stop platforming abortion lies!

We are still reeling from the misinformation, disinformation, and outright lies about abortion that flew out of Donald Trump’s mouth during this year’s first presidential debate, and President Joe Biden’s failure to shut them down. Once again, CNN, which hosted the debate, gave Trump free reign to spew toxic and confusing claims about exceptions to state and federal bans, abortions later in pregnancy, and "abortions after birth"--a delusional term concocted by GOP radicals. Sign the petition to tell CNN to stop platforming abortion lies!

Tell these companies to stop funding the Republican Attorneys General Association!

Tell these companies to stop funding the Republican Attorneys General Association!

No one should be denied life-saving care or be criminalized because of a pregnancy. Yet, companies such as T-Mobile, CVS, GM and Elevance Health have funded the MAGA Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) and its coordinated attacks on our reproductive and civil rights. Let these companies know that they are on notice!

Recap from UltraViolet’s #RealTalkUV quarterly event

Recap from UltraViolet’s #RealTalkUV quarterly event

At the end of June, we held a Zoom call with our members featuring reproductive freedom experts and activists Jodi Jacobson, Sarah Lipton-Lubet, and David Cohen. The call focused on the Comstock Act of 1873, a 150-year-old law that Republicans are trying to resurrect to ban abortion nationwide. While it was frightening to learn all the ways the far right could use this antiquated law to control us, we were also heartened to learn that bills to repeal the Comstock Act have been introduced in the House and Senate, and we are already fighting for their passage.

Tell DA Alvin Bragg: Swiftly retry Weinstein and ensure survivors are treated with care

Tell DA Alvin Bragg: Swiftly retry Weinstein and ensure survivors are treated with care

Harvey Weinstein is a serial sexual predator who was fairly convicted. There is no doubt he committed the crimes he is accused of. It is outrageous that survivors must endure their trauma again by re-telling their stories in another trial. That’s why we are calling on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to swiftly retry Weinstein in a trauma-informed way that takes into consideration the needs of survivors.

Tell Congress: Repeal the Comstock Act Now!

Tell Congress: Repeal the Comstock Act Now!

Anti-abortion extremists are exploiting the Comstock Act, a draconian law from 1873 that bans the U.S. Postal Service and other carriers from mailing materials deemed “obscene.” They are using the law to prohibit the mailing of the abortion pill mifepristone or any drugs, instruments, or supplies for abortion care. The policy could also be enforced to stop medication from reaching people with HIV and AIDS, and even bar access to books that discuss women's history. As long as Congress keeps Comstock on the books, right-wing extremists will have a powerful tool to control our lives. Congress must repeal the Comstock Act immediately!

Tell the FTC: Protect our location data from anti-abortion groups!

Tell the FTC: Protect our location data from anti-abortion groups!

Anti-abortion groups used the location data of people who visited 600 Planned Parenthood clinics across 48 states and targeted them with anti-abortion ads. While this is extremely alarming, it’s not surprising. But now we have a unique opportunity to prevent Near Intelligence, the company that’s been gathering and selling our location data, from ever doing so again. We need your help to force the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to intervene on our behalf and prevent this data broker from being able to sell our location data.

Congress: Pass the DEFIANCE Act to hold creators of deepfakes accountable

Congress: Pass the DEFIANCE Act to hold creators of deepfakes accountable

You may have heard that deepfake pornographic images of Taylor Swift went viral on X (formerly known as Twitter) last week, but you probably haven’t heard of Francesca Mani, the 15-year-old girl in New Jersey who was also a victim of deepfake porn. While the AI-generated images of Taylor Swift may have been removed, most people don’t have an army of fans who can come to their defense online. Congress can protect all of us from this abuse by passing the DEFIANCE Act, which will create a federal civil remedy for victims who are identifiable in a “digital forgery,” which is defined as a visual depiction created through the use of software, machine learning, artificial intelligence, or any other computer-generated or technological means to falsely appear to be authentic. Please add your name in support of this important bill today!
