And thanks to the efforts of our supporters, our message was heard: 20 members of the House of Representatives have already co-sponsored House Resolution 1022, which is focused on ending maternal death (at home and abroad). Included in these co-sponsors are several we met with during our Lobby Day, such as Representatives Chet Edwards (TX), Tammy Baldwin (WI), and Jan Schakowsky (IL). And we hope and expect more will follow.
So let me give a hearty thank-you to: Annette, Amy, Amy, Arlene, Cabby, Cheryl, Chris, Clif, Donna, Ellen, Eman, Esraa, Jeanine, Jill, Kristin, Lara, Lauren, Leila, Madison, Melissa, Micaela, Michaela, Nora, Peggy, Phyllis, Saphonia, Sharon, Tatiana, and Vicki. Good work, and I look forward to working with you in the future for the health and dignity of women everywhere.
