Here’s why Jane Fonda was on the Hill this week

Others lobbying include Ai-jen Poo of National Domestic Workers Alliance, Mónica Ramirez of National Farmworker Women’s Alliance and Fatima Goss Graves of National Women’s Law Center. [… Fonda:] “With the rise of the TIME’S UP and #MeToo movements, the fight for workers rights became a new reality. When Mónica Ramirez of National Farmworker Women’s Alliance sent a letter to Hollywood on behalf of thousands of farmworker women, I knew this was a turning point. To truly solve the issues of dignity, equality, rights and safety, we have to stand in alliance with our sisters across all sectors. That’s why I came out to DC with my sisters from National Domestic Workers Alliance, National Farmworkers Women’s Alliance, and National Women’s Law Center. We will keep calling on Congress for policies that will uphold their rights and dignity. We are here for the long haul.”
