Analilia Mejia

Analilia Mejia is a progressive union and community activist with Jersey roots and nationwide experience fighting for policies that lift up working families. Under her leadership, New Jersey Working Families spearheaded an unprecedented effort to enact earned sick time laws in nine New Jersey municipalities, which ThinkProgress has called "the biggest wave of paid sick day victories ever" and for which President Obama honored her as a "White House Champion of Change." She also leads the fight for revenue solutions that would allow New Jersey to make smart investments that lift up working families, and has recently launched the New Jersey Democracy Project, a campaign to expand voter protections and participation.
