And here are just a couple of examples of what Washington State elected leaders have said about our group:
MomsRising and their members were critical to winning paid family and medical leave inWashington State. MomsRising staff ensured that the experiences and needs of families were centered in crafting our state’s best-in-nation paid leave program and MomsRising members made thousands of contacts with my colleagues in the legislature to let them know that moms were counting on them to lead on leave. We couldn’t have done it without them.”
- Washington State Representative June Robinson
“MomsRising and their 40,000 Washington members were instrumental in our state’s paidfamily and medical leave victory. They brought the voices of mothers, fathers, and family caregivers right into the heart of the policy-making process. Washington’s paid family and medical leave law will not only strengthen families here in Washington, but it will also serve as a blueprint for other states to follow. I am so thankful for the partnership of MomsRising and their continued work to champion working moms and families.”
- Washington State Senator Karen Keiser
