Support the Use of “Healthy” on Bottled Water Labels

Up and down the aisles of grocery stores, Americans can see advertisements about the healthiness or nutritional value of their food and beverage products.  However, despite being a healthy part of a balanced diet, bottled water products are currently prevented
from using the word “healthy” on their labels.  Please join us in sending the attached bipartisan letter to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to encourage the agency to allow the use of the term “healthy” on bottled water.

Join the House Tech Accountability Caucus

We invite you to join the House Tech Accountability Caucus, a group of legislators who seek to engage Congress, the technology sector, and the American people on the critical need to foster an innovative, inclusive, and accountable tech sector.
 
It is difficult to understate the outsized impact the technology sector has on our country. Not only does America’s digital economy support over 7 million jobs, it is reshaping the way we live and work. 
 
As companies continue to innovate, and the tech sector continues to grow, both industry and consumers are faced with new challenges with respect to data and consumer protection, workplace concerns, federal regulations, and the social impact of new technologies.
 
Through legislation, hearings, roundtable discussions, and briefings, the Caucus aims to work with industry in establishing accountability standards to ensure that American tech companies continue to thrive and innovate in an inclusive and accountable manner.

Cosponsor the Security and Financial Empowerment (SAFE) Act to Support Workplace Protections for Domestic Violence Victims

One in four women and one in nine men have suffered physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner, which has a devastating impact on a survivor’s physical and emotional health. Often forgotten when we talk about victims of intimate partner violence,

on their abusers as a result. Abusers often use economic necessities like rent, health care, and child care to exert control over their victims. And victims of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, stalking, and revenge pornography often find that abuse
and threats follow them from home into the workplace – each year, they lose nearly eight million days of paid work—the equivalent of more than 32,000 full-time jobs.
