9to5 Atlanta is proud to announce its 4th annual Community Internship Program (CIP). The CIP is an opportunity for members to learn how to organize around issues central to 9to5’s mission: ending employment discrimination, raising workers’ hourly wages, and passing flexible workplace policies.
In Milwaukee recently, low-wage workers, union members and community activists joined a National Day of Action to raise the minimum wage.

For the Day of Action I talked to people in my community about 9to5 and about the importance of everyone having access to paid sick days. I also got them to sign pledge cards to support candidates who will fight for working families.
Jessica Smith started a petition to get President Obama and Governor Romney talking about paid sick days and family leave insurance. Jessica knows a little something about the need for these policies. She suffered a stroke when she was 3 years old.
9to5 held its third annual National Day of Action on August 26, Women’s Equality Day. In Atlanta, chapter volunteer Nicole Corley blogs about her experiences helping register voters at the Five Points MARTA Station.
