Election Connection: Vote Your Values

We know where we stand.  We vote.  We vote our values.

Working women have the power to determine the outcome of elections. Together we can forge new public and workplace policies that help us and our families reach their full economic potential.

Elections are a time for us to stand together for an America that works for all of us: family-supporting jobs with decent wages, paid sick days, stronger protections against workplace discrimination, and a strong safety net for low-income families.

Join us to elevate women’s voices during elections to promote an agenda that will help families achieve economic prosperity and build a brighter future.

Why Do You Vote?

“I vote because it is my right as a woman of color. It’s my obligation as a citizen, and my parental commitment to model the expectations I have set for my children. Important issues including the Affordable Care Act, which will provide equal access to health insurance for millions of low-income women and their families are at stake. ” – Dawn, 9to5 Colorado member

 

What You Can Do?
