Tell Congress: We need immediate, meaningful action on Zika!


The Zika virus, a mosquito-borne illness linked to serious birth defects, is rapidly spreading around the world. Many Americans – particularly women of childbearing age – are at risk. Rather than focusing on funding a meaningful, viable plan to address the outbreak, obstructionist Republicans in Congress have intentionally planted ideologically extreme “poison pills” to derail any proposed Zika funding legislation. They continue to play politics as usual – with Americans’ health hanging in the balance.

This is too important for Congress to keep ignoring. The millions of people at risk from Zika can’t wait; they need funding to fight the outbreak NOW.

Tell Congress: We need immediate, meaningful action on Zika!
