Sign On Letter in Support of Human Services Workforce


Tell the Governor to fund the human services workforce! Governor Cuomo has built his platform pushing for women’s equality, yet has refused to make critical investments in the salaries of our workers, 80 percent of whom are women. We are asking women who work for non-profit organizations that provide human services to sign this letter, ask the Governor to fulfill his promise on delivering for women across New York by investing in non-profit human services organizations.

We are working with coalitions across the State on this effort to make sure that we can show the Governor not only that this is a critical issue that must be addressed, but also how vast and involved women are in human services organizations. Please take a few moments to share this with your networks and encourage women involved with non-profit human services organizations to sign on.

Below is sample language for your own outreach email. The deadline to sign-on is February 25th, 2019.

Nonprofits and coalitions across the State are coming together to demand better wages for the human services workforce – 80% of whom are women! Governor Cuomo has built his platform pushing for women’s equality yet has failed to make the necessary investments in non-profit human service organizations who employ mostly women. We know how dedicated you are to your work and want to ensure the Governor sees the true impact of this workforce. Women in non-profit human services organizations are asked to sign-on to this letter asking the Governor to fulfill his promise on delivering for women across New York by investing in non-profit human services organizations. This is a critical issue that must be addressed and each and every sign-on makes a difference by showing the Governor that women in human services are united on this issue.

Please share this with your networks and colleagues, asking women who work for non-profit human services organizations to sign-on by February 25th, 2019.
