Current Campaigns

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.

Transit

9to5 Colorado has been organizing for nearly four years to push public transit authorities at the Regional Transportation District in the Denver metro region to provide riders who make 200% of the poverty line a transit pass. Similar to a senior or student pass, it would be half the cost of regular fares.

“Work + family can go together, but we have to break down the barriers that force people to choose between them”. Thank you @AOC, for leading by example and championing for #paidleave. Because no one should have to choose between their job, health and family.

"FAMLI is a natural response to our changing workplaces. It’s a modest, but incredibly important, step in modernizing social insurance and labor protections." -CO FAMLI Steering Committee member Andrea Kuwik #FAMLI2020 #paidleave #coleg https://t.co/1kHcw3S6FU

Andrea “Dre” Chiriboga-Flor

Colorado State Co-Director

Dre started at 9to5 as a public transit organizer but has taken on housing as her main area of work as the housing crisis has progressed throughout the Colorado metro area. Her specific focuses include mobile homes, community control of land, renter’s rights, and she helped co-anchor the coalition Colorado Homes For All, which is based on a national housing justice movement started by Right to the City called Homes For All. Before coming to 9to5 she worked with United Students Against Sweatshops and the Workers Rights Consortium as a volunteer and later worked in childcare, all of which furthered her interest in the intersections of labor, race, and gender.
