Each month, we gather to hear from a guest speaker and to engage in dialogue about the issues facing Nevada women and families.
This month’s speaker is Erika Washington from the Make It Work Campaign.
Make It Work is a three-year education campaign uniting a community of people who believe that hardworking Americans shouldn’t have to choose between being there for family and earning a living.
Working families, and especially women, are increasingly experiencing deep economic instability, between the lingering pay gap, the increasing costs of child and elder care, the lack of paid family leave and low wages.
America is ready for common sense workplace policies and ambitious solutions that will help people across the country “make it work.” So we’re changing the conversation about work and family in this country because it’s 2016, folks — and people who work hard deserve more than a decent living. They deserve a decent life.
