Our campaign is a volunteer-run organization. Because the four day week is something that benefits all of us, we want all of us to contribute to our organization. In order to bring the four day week to more workers and employers, we need you to become a leader too. This is an incredible opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to this movement at its earliest stages. We believe in radical hospitality and the belief that we all do better when we all do better. If you hold those values too and are passionate about the four day workweek, we are the right place for you.
