Engaging in the community about personal issues and taking a stand provides much fulfillment. That is what I have got the opportunity to feel here at 9to5. Standing with the community and for the community means everything to me.
Participating in the Membership Drive, I heard enthusiasm from the community makes me feel that what 9to5 does is important and I am glad that I can be part of that support. Change is important and so is standing up for our community rights. That is what 9to5 does.
Like most people, I have never traveled to the state Capitol to testify at a legislative hearing. But I have been a supporter of paid family leave since I found out that it didn’t exist when I was pregnant with my first son. So I support WI Family Leave Insurance (WIFI) personally, and through the Keeping Families First coalition as the representative of Mid-Day Women’s Alliance, a business women’s organization in Appleton, WI. When I heard about the Senate hearing, I blocked off my day so that I could be there to testify in support of the bill.
