This year we established a ‘Low Wage Advisory Board’ to advise the Governor on industries making a profit by paying poverty wages and abusing public programs, took a first big step towards a state paid family and medical leave program, helped create a first-in-the-country student debt advocate’s office, and much more.
But we couldn’t have done it without your support, and the help of some incredible champions for workers, families, and economic justice.
Every year we come together to celebrate a few of those champions, and you are invited! Join us:
