9to5 Atlanta Welcomes Fair Eats Organizer

9to5 Atlanta welcomes our newest staff member! Vanessa Faraj joined us as the part-time organizer for the Fair Eats Campaign on November 16th. Vanessa earned her Masters degree in Social Work from Georgia State University in 2009. Her previous organizing and development experience includes work with Amnesty International, Project South, and Georgia Stand-Up.

"I am absolutely thrilled and humbled by the opportunity to work with 9to5," says Vanessa. "Low-wage women all too often bear the biggest burden of unjust place conditions and stagnant wages; 9to5 seeks to expose and eliminate these injustices. I am excited to build the momemntum around the Fair Eats campaign as we build power to raise the minimum wage of tipped workers in Georgia!"
