Great news this week -- thanks to your hard work, New Jersey is poised to become the third state in the nation with paid family leave. The NJ State Senate passed the bill 21-15 after receiving over 63,000 (yes that's 63 THOUSAND) letters as part of a major MomsRising campaign. That's what I call "naptime activism" in action!

Learn more about the campaign behind this success story here on, and I also wrote about it on my Mojo Mom blog

Thanks to everyone who added their voices to this important effort. MomsRising campaigns have been instrumental in two of the three states (NJ and WA) that have passed paid family leave. We are making a difference across the country!
