Speaking at the United State of Women Summit was an incredible experience. I never imagined that I would be on the same stage as President Obama, Kerry Washington and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. I spoke on a panel with equal pay advocate Lilly Ledbetter, to discuss the state of women in the workplace.

Wisconsin was a trailblazing state in the 1980’s passing the first state family and medical leave law. Today, Wisconsin has a chance to catch up with the national trend of paid family and medical leave insurance. In an op-ed printed in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Aug 3rd, 9to5 Interim State Director Astar Herndon makes the case for pending state legislation.
New polling in 15 states shows strong support for national policies that support working families. By a nearly two-to-one margin, 61 percent of voters in these states support the creation of a national paid family and medical leave fund, 69 percent support a paid sick days law and 57 percent support increasing access to high-quality affordable child care.
Last week was difficult for many of us at 9to5 and our economic and racial justice allies. The tragic police killings of two more Black men in less than 48 hours filled us with sadness, anger and fear. As a grandmother, it hurt my heart to see a four year old girl witness the murder of her mother’s boyfriend from the back seat of their car.
Our immigration system is tearing families apart. Join 9to5 and our partners across the country to call on President Obama to act now to protect children and their loved ones by stopping all deportations.
I left this Summit feeling more energized to continue working to improve the status of women in my community. As the Summit leaders emphasized, we still have much work to do!
