In addition, please educate me on your struggles. It is ok to swallow your pride and be vulnerable with me. Not only does this help you all with finding solutions and sharing resources, but it aids in my story telling ability. While AWC has no lobbyist, no staff made up of policy makers or paid legal counsel, I am working behind the scenes for you all to find solutions to this crisis. Your examples allow me to say “my members are hurting, how can we help them?” In the months to come you will hear what I am doing to affect change and you may be asked to sit in meetings or to testify. We have 20,000 views and are educating people across the country in just one LinkedIn post. Imagine the change together we can affect.
