Right now, 1 in 4 employed mothers in the United States are back at work just TWO WEEKS after giving birth because they don’t have access to paid family leave. This puts parents in an impossible and unfair bind. But the good news is that paid family leave is being discussed more than ever by major businesses (like Netflix and Facebook), policy makers, and even presidential candidates. So this is a critical time to have this conversation and make an impact!

Join MomsRising volunteer and mom, Monica, on Saturday, June 11th in Austin, TX to talk about how together we can move paid family leave policies. Kids are welcome!

Can you make it? See Monica's personal invite.

This is a chance to learn about MomsRising while connecting with other parents to share your experiences about what it's like to balance family and work. The more we talk to each other about why family-friendly work policies are so important, the more we’ll be able to focus on getting Texas leaders to take action on this issue. So we hope you’ll be able to bring your voice to the conversation!

Here is what you need to know about this event:

When: June 11, 2016 at 1pm - 2pm

Where: Central Market, 4001 N Lamar Blvd
