Paid Family Leave

Take Action

Urgent action needed to support health equity and care in reconciliation!

July 28, 2022
"South Carolina, where I live, has refused to expand Medicaid coverage and I volunteer in my church's outreach program. Our clients need medical care and can't afford it. There is very little help for them. If we had expanded Medicaid, they would be in much better health and some could even go back...

Congress, do the right thing. Pass paid family and medical leave for all.

July 8, 2022
We’ve been fighting so hard to win legislative change like paid family and medical leave that will help our families achieve economic security…and then here comes the Supreme Court two weeks ago overturning Roe v. Wade and striping away our autonomy, our right to be free and equal members of society, and our ability to access the abortion care we need.

Father's Day, the gift of time

June 15, 2022
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, papas, pop-pops, g-pops. My little one calls me dada, I wear the badge proudly. This is Father’s Day #2 for your boy and I cannot express how excited I am. I’m in disbelief that I have a 1 year old already. Time has passed so quickly.

Paid leave is critical to all families

May 16, 2022
At the beginning of the pandemic, Amazon offered up to two weeks of paid time off for employees who had Covid-19 or needed to quarantine, and now, they’ve reduced that to five *unpaid* excused days from work.

For Mother’s Day, We’re Turning the Tables on Congress with a MOMibuster!

May 6, 2022
This weekend, families everywhere will celebrate the mothers in their lives. But while moms appreciate a handmade card, breakfast in bed, or a bouquet of fresh flowers, the Mother's Day gift we really need is progress toward a care infrastructure that makes it possible for our families to thrive.

Help us turn the tables on Congress and MOMibuster THEM!

April 15, 2022
Instead of a tool that blocks the progress moms need, this MOMibuster will actually work for parents, sending the message that we want and need care policies that allow us to both support and care for our families – a care infrastructure that includes affordable child care, free pre-K, paid family and medical leave, home- and community-based services, quality maternal health care for all of us, prescription meds we can afford, a tax system that supports families instead of lining the pockets of wealthy corporations and billionaires, and more.
