The Half in Ten campaign recognizes that we won’t cut poverty in half by 2020 without grassroots activists across the country calling for change. With that in mind, we are working with coalitions in several states to make the half in ten goal a reality.
The Colorado chapter of 9to5, National Association of Working Women, is partnering with the Half in Ten campaign to raise awareness of poverty in Colorado and the policy solutions that can help us ensure economic security and opportunity for all. We plan to educate thousands of directly affected Coloradans about the Half in Ten campaign, and reach out to activists, coalition partners and elected officials to build support for the Half in Ten goal. Through public events, workshops, leadership development, and grassroots organizing, we hope that women and their families all across the state will jump on the train headed towards a just and economically sound Colorado.
9to5, National Association of Working Women is a grassroots membership organization that strives to engage directly affected women in the movement for economic justice in the workplace.
