Celebrating Women’s History Month

Celebrating Women’s History Month

At this event, we were all asked to create a “Because of them, I can…” statement, I chose to dedicate myself to educating others on women’s issues and working towards enacting change. Words cannot describe the feeling of having the opportunity to meet a group of folks who are working towards bettering the lives of others and reaching a place of equality in our country that we so desperately need.

9to5 Member Krysten on How to Get 10% More in Your Tax Refund

9to5 Member Krysten on How to Get 10% More in Your Tax Refund

My name is Krysten Stevenson, and I’m a member of 9to5 Colorado, a grassroots organization that strengthens women’s abilities to win justice for working women. I’m a single mom with two young children. I also take care of my mother, who is older and has suffered from a stroke which requires me to be her caregiver. The Earned Income Tax Credit has consistently provided my family a safety net when we’ve needed it the most.

9to5 Member Arianna on the Importance of Colorado’s New State EITC

9to5 Member Arianna on the Importance of Colorado’s New State EITC

My name is Arianna Caldwell, and I just turned 25 on Saturday. I have two kids – one four-year-old and one baby who just turned one, and I’m a single mom. The EITC has meant a lot to me in the past. In 2013, I had a job and my car recently broke down. It was going to be $2000 to fix my car, and I didn’t have that money. I was riding the bus. If I wasn’t able to pay to get my car fixed, I probably would have lost my job because my child got dropped off at preschool at 7:30 and my job started at 8:30. Using the bus, I wasn’t able to get to work on time. That year, my tax return came just in time, and I was able to pay for the necessary repairs to fix my car and keep my job.

Colorado Needs to Pass the Parental Involvement for Academic Activities Bill for Families Like Mine

My name is Nicole Rodriguez, and I am a member 9to5 Colorado, a grassroots organization that strengthens women’s abilities to win justice for working women. I am a widow with a 12-year-old son, and my family supports HB-1002, Parental Involvement for Academic Activities, which reenacts the 2009 “Parental Involvement in K-12 Education Act.” This bill would allow parents to take a limited amount of job-protected time off from work to attend their children’s academic activities.

Businesses support Family Leave Insurance in Wisconsin

Businesses support Family Leave Insurance in Wisconsin

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.

9to5 Wisconsin leader Nancy Yarborough speaks out for family leave insurance

9to5 Wisconsin leader Nancy Yarborough speaks out for family leave insurance

I love my job and I take pride in my work. But we all know that family and health sometimes have to come first. When that moment comes for other families, I want to make sure they can take the time to celebrate new life, care for their loved one, or say goodbye — without having to worry about paying the bills.
