Nov. 24, 2010 I've been volunteering with NYWA for several months now, and find their dedication to be amazing when it comes to issues that affect public policy issues for women and their families. Recently, I worked with them on their campaign to get the Paycheck Fairness Act passed in the Senate. I was amazed at their determination to get the bill passed by reaching out to women's groups and organizations across the country, and Senators who had voiced an opposition to the Act. The staff put in endless hours on the campaign, even though the bill ultimately failed to pass in a disappointing Senate procedural vote of 58-41. However, NYWA has expressed their commitment to continue the fight to get the Paycheck Fairness Act passed. Pat Lewis
