29th Annual WFSA Luncheon

Thank you for building community with us.

The Annual WFSA Luncheon took place on April 12-14, 2022 and was centered on the theme of ‘Women Thriving’.

Land’s instant New York Times bestseller Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive, the basis for the hit Netflix series of the same name, recounts her harrowing saga as a single mom navigating the bureaucratic nightmare of living below the poverty line. At age 28, Land’s dream of attending college and becoming a writer is deferred when she and her seven-month-old flee a violent home and move into a homeless shelter, lacking any form of reliable safety net. Mired in patronizing bureaucratic processes and paltry wages, Land illustrates the trauma of grasping for stability from a rigged system, and demonstrates how hard work doesn’t always pay off. Instead, she reveals the real culprits of her situation: domestic violence, untenable minimum wages, high housing costs, and government assistance programs that fail the people they ostensibly serve.
