Moms Rising needs your assistance, Louisianians!

There's this thing making its way through Congress known as the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. It passed in the House despite our newly elected congressman voting against it (boooooo). Now it needs your help getting through the Senate.

Two ways to do this:

-Send a message to the Senate via this link.

-Give Mary Landrieu a call TODAY and tell her you want her to vote yes on this important legislation.

And if you need any more incentive to take such actions, try calculating the average forty-year period career wage gap in your state with the help of this link. I'm trying to find a way to post the calculator on my sidebar even as you read.

Make us proud, Mary!

Update, 8:33 PM: Via E, who started it, vote for real flood protection at, and make sure it ends up on President Obama's desk. When the numbers get into the thousands, it has a better chance of making it there.
