Over the course of my job as a wine professional, I worked closely with local sales teams, trade professionals, and distributor partners. I also contributed to bringing national recognition to a local business. The pandemic’s impact continues to create immense stress and uncertainty. For single women, working mothers, women of color, native and immigrant women, this cannot be overstated. On a personal and professional level, I have experienced the immeasurable loss of family members, professional alliances, and the loss of my livelihood.

HB 20, Healthy Workplaces Act is a critical first step towards healing our workers on the front lines, supporting women who want to get back to work, and supporting the recovery of our industry.
