PathWays PA Special E-Alert: Support Women's Health and Paid Sick Days

STOP THE ATTACKS ON WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE!

Join Raising Women’s Voices of Southeastern Pennsylvania, a coalition which PathWays PA is a member of, for a Rally in Support of Women’s Health Care

WHEN: Thursday, February 17th at 11:30 AM
WHERE: Thomas Paine Plaza in front of the Municipal Services Building, 1417 JFK Blvd (across from City Hall)

WHAT’S AT STAKE?
  • Legislation in both Harrisburg and Washington DC aims to stop women from using their own money to purchase health insurance that covers abortion.
  • Some members of Congress are proposing to entirely eliminate all federal funding for family planning and reproductive health services which will lead to more unintended pregnancies.
  • They are also proposing deep cuts in federal funding for maternal and child health.

COME TO THE RALLY AND HEARING ON EARNED SICK DAYS! 

Everyone Gets Sick— Not Everyone Has the Time to Get Better

2 out of every 5 workers in Philadelphia do NOT have a single paid sick day.

Help Us Tell City Council to Give ALL Workers a Chance to Earn Paid Sick Days.

WHEN: March 1, 2011 9:00 AM
WHERE: City Hall, Philadelphia

Join the Coalition for Healthy Families and Workplaces at City Hall for a Rally and Press Conference and then help us pack the Hearing Room to show the importance of this bill.

Register to attend at: http://rallyforearnedsicktime.eventbrite.com

Even if you have paid sick days remember a majority of restaurant, child care, and health care workers do not—the lack of paid sick days in Philadelphia impacts us all!

  1. Getting out and moving around is one of the most important things you can do for your body, no matter what condition you're in. Exercise is also great, because there are so many different things you can do, from aerobic exercise like running, biking and swimming to anaerobic exercise, like strength training.
