U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham
ALBUQUERQUE – U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham released the following statement about Mother’s Day:
“On this day, we recognize the sacrifices and triumphs of mothers, grandmothers and caregivers on behalf of children and families and recommit to doing all we can to ensure their forward progress.
“While we have much to be proud of, much more must be done to ensure our federal policies reflect our deepest held values of justice, family and equality. We must keep fighting so that mothers, especially women of color, receive equal pay for equal work, paid family leave, affordable and quality childcare and healthcare, and have an equal chance at economic opportunity.
“I wish every mother in New Mexico and around the world a happy mother’s day. Together, working across the aisle, we can ensure that federal policies that help women and families prosper are enacted into law.”
