Work/Family Policy

Everyone has a sick child or relative at some point, yet 88% of Coloradans don’t have paid leave to care for a seriously ill family member, welcome a new baby or recover from a personal illness. The CO FAMLI Act will create a family and medical leave insurance program for all Colorado employees.

Affordable Housing

9to5 recognizes housing as a human right and sees the lack of affordable housing as a factor that contributes to the wage gap. Some of the specific issues 9to5 is currently working on is renter’s rights on the state and local level, affordable housing, community control of land, development without displacement, and rights for mobile home owners.

Workplace Equity

9to5 Colorado’s work centers low income and vulnerable populations in the workforce. We have led efforts to close the gender pay gap in Colorado for over 20 years, prioritizing the need of women of color. We are currently offering Know Your Rights in the Workplace trainings and helped pass the 2019 Equal Work for Equal Pay bill.

September 15 marks the start of Hispanic Heritage Month! As we celebrate the diverse families, cultures & contributions of Latinx Americans, we will continue to advocate for the needs of all families like paid leave for all and affordable childcare. #HispanicHeritageMonth

Latinx workers are the fastest growing segment of the workforce but are the least likely to have access to paid sick days or paid family leave. This #HispanicHeritageMonth we need #PaidLeaveForAll

Self-evictions mean that actual displacement is much higher than the number of court judgments.

By requiring that landlords notify tenants of their #RightToCounsel when an eviction notice is provided, our initiative aims to cut down on self-evictions! https://twitter.com/evictionlab/status/1437808678539776002
