Make It Work is the education arm of our campaign working to advance economic security for women, men and families across the country. America is ready for common sense workplace policies and ambitious solutions that will help people across the country “make it work.” To that aim, Make It Work is changing the conversation about work and family in this country.
Make It Work Action (MIWA) is the nonpartisan advocacy arm of Make It Work. MIWA engages in activities, including voter education, candidate “birddogging” and impacting public policy.
MIWA is championing new policy solutions to help families make it work — and working to ensure that public officials and candidates are doing the same. To take all this from pipe dream to policy, MIWA is working hard to hold public officials and candidates accountable to everyday people. That includes organizing in the states – partnering with strong local organizations and in places where the 2016 presidential contest unfolds.
