New parents need time to recover from birth or adoption and bond with their babies. We all need time to care for aging or ailing parents and relatives. And if, g-d forbid, you fall ill or sustain an injury, you've earned the time to tend to your health so you can get better. When our families need us, or when we need us, we shouldn’t have to also worry about the bills, or whether we'll have a job later.
Paid family and medical leave insurance ensures that working people and families have the financial stability they need when life happens.
It's time for DC to make sure that no one has to choose between the care their families need and the paycheck they depend on.
JUFJ is a lead partner with the DC Paid Family Leave Coalition, a diverse collection of local businesses, community institutions, service providers, and advocacy organizations. We're working for a policy that covers today's diverse families and the variety of medical and life challenges our families face – and we need your help.
