Supermajority’s Executive Director Amanda Brown Lierman on the House Passage of Build Back Better
Plan to Engage Women Launches Today in Several States Where Women are Suffering
Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Build Back Better Act, a landmark piece of legislation that, among other things, invests in children, caregiving, and healthcare. In response, Supermajority Executive Director Amanda Brown Lierman issued the following statement on behalf of the more than 3.5 million women in the Supermajority community:
“Women paved the way for today’s victory for American families and workers by coming together to ensure Congress works for all of us. The House passage of the Build Back Better Act is an exciting, historic step in the right direction, and we are proud of all of the women who stood up, spoke out, and made it happen. This is what it looks like when we put representatives in office who prioritize the issues we care about.
“Now it’s time for the Senate to act. Passing Build Back Better will ensure all Americans have access to paid leave, affordable child care, and universal preschool. It will improve working conditions for home care workers and lower the cost of things women and families depend on.
“After nearly two years of stress and uncertainty in this ongoing pandemic, we need the relief that generations of women have worked for and dreamed of. That’s why we’re going to keep pushing — women are the supermajority of voters in America, and when we work together, we’re unstoppable.”
