Are you a 9to5 member yet ?!?

February 1st marked the kickoff of 9to5’s Nationwide Membership Drive! Over the next four months, 9to5 members across the country will be telling family, friends, and coworkers why they care about working women’s issues – and inviting them to join our movement by becoming a member of 9to5.

On average, women still earn only 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. If there was ever a time to join the movement to improve women’s lives at work, it’s now!

When you become a member of 9to5, your contribution supports our grassroots organizing efforts to win change on issues such as paid sick days and family-friendly workplace policies, as well as help continue the work of programs like our Job Survival Helpline and our leadership training workshops for low-wage working women.

Becoming a member of 9to5 connects you to a nationwide network of women and activists who care about working women’s issues. It also empowers you to become an agent of change on the issues that directly impact your life.

As a member of 9to5, you will:

  • Be invited to local, regional, and national leadership conferences
  • Participate in trainings to develop your leadership, organizing, advocacy and fundraising skills
  • Receive action alerts on state and national legislation to expand workplace rights and family-friendly policies
  • Be connected with working women, activists, and resources across the country

Ways to join:

  • $15 reduced membership rate during the drive
  • $25 membership plus a 9to5 t-shirt ( featured in the picture)
  • Give an additional scholarship membership donation to help low-wage working women become members
How to join:
  • Click here to visit the membership page on the 9to5 website.
  • Visit our Facebook Causes page to join and donate – it couldn’t be easier!
