Workplace Initiatives are very important for WE WILL. Family Leave and Equal Pay are at the top of that list.

WE WILL often visit Springfield, phone bank, and have events to work with our legislators to discuss passage of family leave and equal pay initiatives. WE WILL has proudly participated in passing Pregnancy Accommodation, No Salary History, and anti sexual harassment policies.

People of color and women deserve pay equity and WE WILL continue to take on this fight year after year in Springfield.
