Defense: Say No to Elimination of the Department of Labor Women’s Bureau

The Trump Administration’s proposed federal budget would have a devastating impact on many agencies key to the economic security of our families and the defense of women’s rights. One important example: dramatic cuts to the Department of Labor Women’s Bureau – the only agency in the entire federal government dedicated to empowering women to achieve economic security.  

The proposed budget includes cuts to the Bureau of 70%. This would eliminate all regional offices and render the agency unable to fulfill its mission. 

Tell the White House directly to fully fund the Women’s Bureau by following the steps outlined below!

  • Respond to the WH survey by June 12th. 
  • Under Select Cabinet Agency Click Department of Labor: Full Department
  • Under the “Share your idea, your proposal…” box simply state: The Women’s Bureau should be fully funded, so that all of the regional offices can remain open, fully staffed and functioning.
  • Be careful NOT to select the Women’s Bureau under the question asking which agencies should be eliminated.  
  • You can select “None or N/A” for the remaining questions. Complete your personal contact information, then submit.             

Make sure to also contact your Members of Congress and urge them to vote NO on any budget proposal that eliminates or fails to fully fund the Women’s Bureau.
