WAGES (Women's Action to Gain Economic Security)
April 9, 2009
I'm proud to serve as a Board Member of this non-profit, which creates worker-owned eco-friendly home cleaning businesses in the Latina community. Being worker-owners has a huge impact on the personal and family income for the women involved, as well as reducing the health impacts (asthma, reproductive hazards, etc.) of cleaning chemicals by using the least toxic ones available. This is good for the women in the business, their clients -and- the environment, win-win all around.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...the impacts it has on the women in each of the WAGES cooperatives, their families and communities.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
...the enthusiasm of the staff and Board in support of WAGES mission.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
...expand the number of cooperatives it has by over 10x and provide hundreds more Green Jobs!!!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Board Member & I've served on and chaired the Board through WAGES recent expansion.
