Economic justice and paid family leave
9to5 Georgia’s mission is to build a movement to achieve economic justice, by engaging directly affected women to improve working conditions. 9to5 Georgia is a statewide chapter of 9to5, National Association of Working Women. We are building an effective movement for change, using organizing, civic engagement, advocacy, coalition-building and leadership development strategies to build power and change public policy.
The Community Justice Fellowship Program that 9to5 Georgia launched in 2022 has had two cohorts of 15 people in Savannah so far. Fellows receive a stipend and participate in a 12-week program on advocacy and implementation skills for campaigns. Then participants are charged with recruiting the next class of fellows from their networks, exponentially increasing the base of local supporters.
In 2022, Georgia spent $853M in stabilization grants spread over 3,600 provider locations. And at their End of Year Campaign they raised grassroot funds of $70k for Paid Leave.
