Voter & Legislative Engagement

9to5 California’s Get Out the Vote work includes organizing around non-partisan ballot initiatives that impact women and families, and educating our membership and larger community about their rights as voters. Once the elections are over, we mobilize our membership to hold their policy-makers accountable throughout the legislative session.


We’re proud to have contributed to the effort for California to lead the way in passing paid family and medical leave and paid sick days – but these laws don’t go far enough! 9to5 California works to expand paid leave and paid sick days protections to cover all workers and better meet families’ needs.

Workplace discrimination

Through education, legislative advocacy and coalition work, 9to5 California tackles workplace discrimination, including unequal pay, workplace bullying, discrimination based on disability, and sexual harassment.

Economic Justice

In service to our vision of an end to poverty, 9to5 California fights for affordable housing, universal health care, and an end to wage theft (where employers steal from their workers by denying breaks, forcing employees to work off the clock, misclassifying employees as independent contractors, and much more).
