Prior to joining MomsRising, Erin Bennett Leighton spent more than a decade as an organizer, nonprofit director, and consultant in Colorado. Most of that time was with 9to5 Colorado, where as the State Director, she led the chapter's organizing, legislative, and electoral campaigns - particularly focusing on paid family and medical leave and other work-family campaigns. She currently serves as the Board Chair of Colorado Jobs With Justice. Erin received her BA from Colorado College in Biology and Women’s Studies. She lives in Denver with her wife Lucia and their two adorable cats, Oscar and Nuka, and spends as much time as she can exploring the mountains and wilderness areas of Colorado and the West.
