Paid Family Leave

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.
