My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Women Employed, Chicago, IL, USA
I've volunteered with Women Employed for over a decade because they are meeting a need that few other groups address. The working poor, and low-wage working women in particular, have Women Employed to thank for advocating for equal opportunity laws, equal pay for equal work, earning sick days, workplace rights for pregnant women, college financial aid for working adults, and fighting against unfair scheduling. I've had a US Senator's Chief of Staff say to me that he can always tell when Women Employed is "on the case" because they tackle issues others don't, because their constituents are always so knowledgeable when calling the Senator, and because they persist until they get results. Women Employed is a small but mighty nonprofit!!
